Quite right; it is a P-38.

The Olympus 50/2 Macro is a new lens designed for the Olympus E1 DSLR.
I believe that it was formulated from the get go as a digital lens, and
it may have no counterpart in the Olympus SLR range.  In the event, it's
a wonderful lens, on par with the Summicron 90/2 pre-asph, which I also

Thanks for the comments.  I've several more images that I'll post as
time permits.

Jim, I also think it's the nose of a P-38.

I'm a little confused by the Olympus (Zuiko?) f/2 50mm lens. While I 
don't claim to know every lens they ever made, I thought their 50 was 
either an f/1.8, f/1.4 or f/3.5. Did I miss something along the way?
