View Full Version : Olympus Pen Pancake
I've been intrigued by this elusive lens. I'm curious if anyone can offer some examples, thoughts regarding its performance relative to other standards in the lineup. Also, what is a reasonable price for this lens?
the lens is tiny and makes the pen F camera's truly pocketable. Don't expect the performance of the other standard lenses. Close focussing is 80cm and that is not very close :).
Prices range from cheap to about 400$, if you're lucky one is simply connected to a body, that's the way I got mine, including lens case, pen FT and body cap for 250$. If it weren't this way, I wouldn't have bought it.
I must admit it looks terribly handsome on a pen FV though :)
thanks! I usually see them around $400 and it seems a high price to pay for compactness if the lens isn't excellent.
Just were interested to see diff between std and pancake lenses, and found picture of both them (http://www.flickr.com/photos/peterjohndean/3707578864/in/photostream/). I have SLR pancake and can admit that if I want to go compact, there are smaller cameras than SLR and better lenses bigger just by a little.
