Hi everyone.

Has someone experience in using Olympus Pen F lenses on E mount cameras?

Specifically, 38/1.8, 100/3.5 and 150/4 on Apsc bodies as I guess they won't cover FF without massive vignetting

You are talking about the old half frame film cameras.

A quick google search gave the following
Fotodiox sells an adapter.
Review of two of the lenses on Fuji
The 35/1.8 on a Sony camera

Seems perfectly fine on an APS-C camera. Half frame is 24x18, APS-C (in the Sony A6x00 cameras) is 23.5x15.6 - so, a little smaller.

There is this https://www.dyxum.com/dforum/samples-olympus-pen-f-f-zuiko-autos-38mm-f1-8_topic124009.html

I'm sure someone was shooting with Pen lenses ages ago, but they may not have put samples in a thread...

The wonders of the Dyxum search!

I remembered that the (much missed) TigerTimb used to adapt a remarkable amount of stuff to E mount - sure enough, he did adapt at least some Pen stuff... the search below brings up OM stuff as well (I dont think the search recognises words of less than 4 characters, so I had to search for Olympus..)

Hope this gives you something of interest:

Thanks for helping guys. I,'d already saw some of the links you posted.

I'll give a try to this 100mm and maybe lurking for more at bargain price, provided I'd like having an original pen also..

Today I had the chance to try the 100/3.5. Impressive how tiny it is. Lens looks sharp, more test is needed, not so easy with the lockdown..
