UPDATE: Here are the proper specifications. Essay follows:
Lens: 35mm F2.8-17.5 (5 elements in 4 groups - Sonnar type)
Filter thread: 46mm
Shutter: 1/8 to 1/430 sec
NOTE: personal experience has shown the camera is capable of 2 sec exposures IF you push the flash head down and keep it down after the camera takes a light reading until exposure. Some people tape it down.
Focus range: 0.8 metres to infinity
ISO Range: 50 to 1000 ASA on later models. Set manually. Early 1984 models only went up to 400 ASA.
Power: Two AA batteries
I had this camera. I gave it as a gift and then went on a hunt to find a replacement.
I love the Nikon L35AF. It feels like a real rangefinder, though in fact its just an auto focus. It was Nikon's first AF camera actually. Still, when I carry it around, I imagine I'm Henri Cartier-Bresson, if HCB used a super noisy machine with no manual controls besides picking the ISO, and if HCB liked wider lens like the L35's 35mm focal length. I think he called that particular focal length "shrill."
Oh well, irregardless, the lens is crazy good and big. I prefer it to using my Olympus Infinity Stylus Epic -- would you believe. The good old Olympus, tack sharp and all, needs to fire the lens out of the body to get in focus. I sometimes find it very alarming. The L35 keeps the lens movement within the barrel.
It has a metal frame. And there are a series of ways to make the camera shoot as if you had aperture control .... kind of...

It's populated by a dedicated group of Nikon L35AF shooters who have tried to get the most out of the camera and its limitations.
There you will find in the discussion topics ways to manipulate the camera so it will shoot with no flash (this requires a photographer/behaviourial hack) and how to force a wider aperture.
Plus you'll learn how to take street photos with it suffering the grinding sound of the motor - at least for one shot.
