• Smallest SLR ever

• $249 with 24mm f2.8 lens in 1978 ($833 in 2010 dollars)

The smallest SLR ever. The Pentax ME was the smallest full-frame 35mm SLR, and the Olympus Pen F was the smallest SLR that took 35mm film (it was half-frame), but they're huge compared to the Auto 110, as shown in the photo below. (The ME and the Pen F are both shown by this app.)

It's even smaller than the Canon 110ED (in this app, too), a non-SLR, as shown below.
