    I am looking for an Olympus Pen F (FT or FV as well as they are basically the same thing). Please let me know what you have and how much you want for it. I can pay by paypal.

    Thanks,

    Nick

    hi nick

    my pen ft is getting a complete overhaul and the lens a full cla.
    i have used it non-stop for 2 -3 years.
    i LOVE the camera and format but when it returns to me i may be interested in selling it.

    ritz camera in arizona ( collectiblecameras dot com ) often times has some to sell.

    good luck finding one!

    One thing to be aware of: the FT diverts part of the incoming light through the lens to the metering system, which makes the focusing image on an FT somewhat darker than on an unmetered F. I too have an FT and it's a fine, fine camera. Gene Smith used one at one time, if his old Olympus magazine ads can be believed. Good luck in your search.
