Original Film Olympus Pen F in Black?

  1. I am curious to know if Olympus ever produced an original black Pen F with the gothic F front plate. I am only aware of original chrome F, chrome or black FT, and chrome FV. I assume anyone selling a black of blue Pen F is a re-painted sample. I am surprised the recent digital Pen F did not include the beautiful gothic F - it would have added so much charm.
  2. There's an entry on Camera Wiki which shows a black F with the scripted "F".

    Can't post a link.
  3. I missed this reference - thank you. The gold lettering is strong in the Camera Wiki black F sample. No production data on the black version. I have never seen a chrome F with gold lettering - the paint must have worn out over time.
