I've uploaded this to my Flickr, where you can download them at full resolution: https://www.flickr.com/photos/194408730@N08/sets/72157720128243484/

Yeah, they were only small images to begin with, people have made do with the photos that are out there/patents/drawn their own diagrams, but it's nice to have a consistent clean scan. Also, not all the element diagrams online include the body shape/physical dimensions seen in this booklet.

What's interesting- whoever drew this did so inconsistently. The Olympus bayonet is too small on a number of lenses, when you overlay ones with the same diameter measurements.

From this booklet

Ok- turns out this is an earlier booklet which doesn't include all the OM lenses. I have another, later one which adds some more, but the following I don't have literature with diagrams:

40/2 Pancake
50/2 Macro
90/2 Macro
100/2 - With ED element
180/2 - With ED element
250/2 - With ED element
350/2.8 - With ED element
500/8 Mirror
35-70/3.5-4.8 S-Zuiko - Released together with the OM-2000 and only sold as a kit with this body; made by Cosina
35-70/4 AF
35-80/2.8 - With ED element
70-210/4.5-5.6 S-Zuiko - made by Cosina

Not including the OM AF / OM PF lenses for the OM-707 / OM-101.

I will scan in and add the other diagrams to a new folder, and make it clear which comes from which booklet.

Oh, Olympus. They sure did make some lovely lenses.

Regarding the lens booklet, I wish Olympus would've chosen a cover photo without armpits!
