    I've recently bought a Nikon L35AF camera. From some experiments I did
    on it, it seems that its focusing system has only 9 positions.

    1- anyone knows what are the actual measured distance for each
    position?
    2- some comments about this camera are saying that its focusing system
    is very accurate. But are 9 focusing positions sufficient to get sharp
    pictures?

    Thanks to you all.

    For the most part, the L35AF camera can produce decent average snapshot
    photos. My sister still uses her L135AF camera, which predates the L35AF
    camera by a year or two, and she still gets good photos.

    The L35AF, if I remember correctly, has an f/2.8 lens which is quite
    sharp. However, these cameras can show focus errors when they are dirty.
    Check your prints, shoot a test roll at a variety of distances, use a
    model if you can and use your flash in some of the pictures. I had one of
    these cameras back in 1990 that I bought for $25 or so at a flea market
    and loved it, though the focus wasn't so good.

    I would consider selling your L35AF and look for a used Olympus Stylus.
    It has a far more advanced focusing system and is smaller and will go
    farther! (not the newer *epic* model, it is cheaply made).

    Cheers,
