Olympus OM-88 with Sakar case, original Olympus branded strap, Rokinon 26AMD detachable flash and equipped with Olympus AF Zoom 35-70mm 1:3.5-4.5! 

The Olympus OM-88 was a single lens reflex released in 1988 by Olympus, as part of the OM System. The camera features a powered OM mount, which takes Olympus OM lenses as well as OM AF (autofocus) and OM PF (Power Focus) lenses. 

After the unsuccessful autofocus SLR OM-707, the OM-88 was a simpler model aimed at the amateur market, which could take the autofocus lenses but only had an electric focusing command with no autofocus. There were even two lenses released without any focusing ring or autofocus capacity — only compatible with the OM-88 and labelled 'PF' for PowerFocus. These were the 50mm/F2 PF and 35–70mm/F3.5–4.5 PF. Along similar lines to the OM-707, the OM-88 is not an 'OM System' camera either, with almost no compatibility with system components other than lenses and most flashes. All AF OM Lenses can be used on the OM-88 however, although only in PF mode.

As standard, the OM-88 body only has a program exposure mode; no program shift or shutter speed information is displayed at all (unlike the OM-707 which at least shows the shutter speed/program shift when using AF OM lenses in AF mode) so there is no way of knowing the camera's selected program. With manual focus OM lenses, the body operates in aperture priority mode, again with no information displayed about the selected shutter setting.
