I am very familiar with the 3 Oly lenses I think without looking it up 38, 40, 42mm.

The Zuiko OM lenses were great lenses. The Pen lenses were built for a half frame camera

that was not the pro level product like the FF OLY cameras that are still considered legendary.

The Pen body and lenses lack the details of the Zuiko OM lenses.

Minolta made the CL model and made a 40mm f1.4.

Voigtlander made SLII 40mm f2 and also a 40mm f1.4.

I like the idea of a Sigma 30mm f1.4 too but only the new model. The old model isn't worth

getting it was great in the center but had issues elsewhere.

Now for the price conscious the Nikon 35 that Rockwell likes is good for the money and 52mm on Nex. If you can get the extra cash go for the Sigma 30 MKII, its a 45mm including the crop.

I do own Pen F lenses, as well as Zuiko OM lenses, and the Pen F certainly are not lacking in any way against the OM lenses...

For your information, Minolta never produced a 40mm f1.4 for the CLE cameras, but a 40mm f2.
