The Olympus µ[mju:]-II (US: ∞ Stylus Epic) was an award-winning 35mm compact camera issued by Olympus in 1997. Its small splashproof body, accurate autofocus, fast and sharp prime lens, and integrated auto-flash, led to it becoming something of a modern classic. It was originally available in black or silver. Around 3.8 million examples were sold[1].

It was also issued in LIMITED form in 1998, released to mark 10 million total sales of mju/Stylus cameras. 65,000 examples in burgundy fascia were made available in 1998. Versions with QD (Quartzdate date-imprinting) were also available.
