The Olympus Flex A is a simplified model, with the setting wheels replaced by ordinary levers. The first version was announced in Japanese magazines dated May 1955. It has f/3.5 taking and viewing lenses, and a Seikosha-Rapid shutter (B, 1–500) in #00 size. For some months, it was only called Olympus Flex A or Olympus Flex AI; it was renamed Olympus Flex A 3.5 after the release of the f/2.8 model. The Olympus Flex A 2.8 has 7.5cm f/2.8 viewing and taking lenses, with bayonet filter attachments. The shutter is a Seikosha-Rapid in #0 size, to accomodate the bigger lens, and has 1/400 top speed. The position of the speed and aperture controls is inverted when compared with the A 3.5.The A 2.8 was first advertised in the December 1955 issue of Asahi Camera, and was announced in the January 1956 issue of major Japanese photography magazines.
- Type A 2.8
- November 1955
- Keeps the general design of the 3.5 A, but Bay-1 filter fitting and self-timer return, with a bigger 2.8 lens at cut price. Costs seem to have been shaved by using the 1/400 Seikosha shutter. As for the 3.5, the "D Zuiko" 2.8 lens with only four elements is deployed.
