Chronology of cameras Ricoh 

This is one of at least six similar cameras marketed between 1985 and 1989 including the AF-45, AF-50, AF-55, AF-60s, and AF-70. The principal difference is that the 45, 55, and 60s had a 3 element ‘Ricoh’ lens, whilst the 50, 60 and 70 had a 4 element ‘Rikenon’ lens. The flash ready and focus achieved lamps are alongside the viewfinder.
