There was an extensive range of lenses sold for the Olympus Pen F series.
Please note that because the body is for half-frame format, the angle of view is not the same as for full-frame lenses, for example a 38mm lens is here considered as a standard lens, roughly equivalent to a usual 50mm.
Most lenses existed in two versions, one for the Pen F and one for the Pen FT on which a scale of numbers was added underside the diaphragm ring, used to operate the uncoupled exposure meter.
The lenses are listed below:
- 38/1.8, normal lens
- 38/2.8, made in very small numbers at the beginning of the Pen F production
- 38/2.8 Pancake, usually sold with the black models
- 38/3.5 Macro
- 40/1.4, normal lens
- 42/1.2, ultra luminous normal lens
- 100/3.5, common
- 150/4, common
- 250/5, rare
- 400/6.3, rare
- 800/8 Mirror, rare
At least one example of a Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar 54mm f/2 is known in Pen F mount. It has a black and chrome finish, quite similar to the Olympus lenses. It seems that the lens was a genuine prototype by Carl Zeiss Jena, but this is not known for sure.
Olympus made adapters to mount other lenses on the Pen F bodies. They were for:
- Exakta lenses
- Nikon F lenses
- Minolta lenses
- Canon FD lenses, not sure
- 39mm screw lenses, does not preserve infinity, for macro only
- 42mm screw lenses
- Olympus OM lenses
