    This is mine, but the lightmeter is broken.
    But bought myself a secondhand Polaris Flash Meter I for 50€.
    A lot cheaper as sending the Pen for repair.

    These are some pics I shot with my Pen Ft. I like the ones in color more.

    Hi Tom, I have two, but one is dead, jammed or something. Also have a few lenses, but don't think I could part with them!

    That's an easy repair if you can't wind the camera.

    You have to remove the bottom plate.
    Than you can see the bottom of inside the camera.

    Now you have to look for a black plate shaped like a Z with 2 90° angles.
    Push this plate jently, the camera will click.

    Put back together and shoot some more film.

    I no longer have my collection of Pen F series slrs. An Olympus rep was scouring the country looking for all he could find to resell to the medical industry. I had the F, FT and FTV bodies along with the complete lineup of lenses. At the time I was picking them up, I was collecting 1.2 frame cameras. These Pens were wonderful shooters and the results excellent.

    I only traded because the photo dealer who contacted me offered an unbelievable trade for a nearly new nearly complete Bronica ETRS system and some other cameras I was looking for. We cut a deal for my then entire camera collection that included almost all then Oly 1/2 cameras, a very extensive Exacta collection that at the time someone else was searching for and a number of other cameras. Never regretted the trade but, always missed the Pen F system as it was a great travel and daily shooter.

    I just developed my first roll from a FT with the 38/1.8 lens I recently picked up. My god these are awesome cameras and that 38mm lens is TACK sharp.
