The Olympus Pen F was the world's first and only half-frame system single-lens reflex camera, released in 1963. The Olympus Pen F was a revolutionary camera packed with innovative features. With the new digital PEN cameras Olympus started a new era of mirror less cameras with outstanding design. The lens cap with the special F logo has a diameter of 37mm and can be used with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm 1:2.8 Pancake lens.

No true PEN enthusiast would be without this stylish and historic accessory. Its silver F logo is a striking visual reference to the front of the original Olympus Pen F and blends superbly with the black metal body of the E-P2. The cap can also be purchased separately for ¤49.90. Part number: LC-37 F Logo MFT Lens Cap.
