Olympus 35 ECR range markings


New Member
Hello list,

I'm a new member because of a strange question I'm seeking the answer to. It concerns the Olympus 35 ECR, which was manufactured back in the early to mid 1970s.

If someone there has one, the question is: what are its range markings,labeled or estimated, starting from infinity in? E.g., infinity, 20m, 10m, (8), 6m... or what? I ask because a certain 35 ECR camera once took some pictures, when its focusing mechanism was not working and was said to be stuck "one notch short of infinity." I don't know if "notch" makes sense here or not.

Thanks in advance,
