No, because the camera works in 'portrait' format it's still slightly wide. It roughly has the same coverage as a 40mm lens on 35mm. It's a great travel camera!
The Pen 'D' had a different lens, which if I remember correctly it was 32mm which would correspond with Rob's estimate. I always thought of that as similar to a standard 50mm. The standard lens on the Pen FT SLR made by Olympus was even longer, again if I remember correctly was 38mm which would have made it an equivalent of a Biotar F2 which was 58mm

I've always fancied a Pen FT with 25mm, 38mm, and 70mm lenses.

They cost an arm and a leg these days, but the lenses so I have been told are up to the standard of the best of the day, however I remember there was a question mark over the shutter design and could be a bit 'iffy'.
