    Is it binoculars or spyglass or other types of telecopes? Oh, mine is a wild guess.

    Re: Riddle

    Or an auto-focus ("AF") camera...? Some optical device...

    But it'd be a more satisfying riddle if it played on the metaphorical sense of 'in focus'. I wouldn't be at all surprised if I saw something like this on an advertisement:

    With it, all things are in focus.
