While the SP was the top of the line in these rangefinders the RC was the smallest. At the time it was reported to be the smallest all auto or all manual rangefinder camera on the market. It's form and function are simple, easy &amp; quick to use. This one has a pressure plate code of 七79 which if it follows the same convention as the other Olympus range finders of the time was made at the factory coded 七in September 1970.  The Serial number seems a bit high for this though so I'm wondering if its July (七) 1979. I either have an early model or one of the last models! <br><br>
