Anyone bought one of these or have a view on it?
Surely the pen F is not that much cheaper in Japan...or is it?
I suspect you're looking at the Pen F or Pen FT half frame, but 60 is likely to buy a heap of junk.
Here's my Pen FT complete with 40mm f/1.4. Add another naught and you're getting closer to the price. (I didn't pay quite as much but in the same ball park.)
