35mm Focal-Plane Shutter SLR Camera

T70 [A] [E] [J]
Marketed April 1984
Original Price 104,000 yen (w/FD 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5),

The second T-series camera. The camera kit included an FD 35-70mm f/3.5-4.5 lens or an FD 28-55mm f/3.5-4.5.

The large LCD panel and key-touch buttons had a major impact on 35mm SLR cameras that followed. The T70 features shutter speed-priority TTL AE, TTL multi-program AE, and preset aperture AE. The dual metering system gives a choice of centerweighted averaging metering and partial metering at the center. In 1984, the camera won the Good Design Award (from the Ministry of International Trade and Industry) and the European Camera of the Year Award.
