We present a precise calculation of the pion form factor using overlap fermions on seven ensembles of ()-flavor domain-wall configurations with pion masses varying from 139 to . Taking advantage of the fast Fourier transform and other techniques to access many combinations of source and sink momenta, we find the pion mean square charge radius to be , which agrees well with the experimental result, and includes the systematic uncertainties from chiral extrapolation, lattice spacing and finite-volume dependence. We also find that depends on both the valence and sea quark masses strongly and predicts the pion form factor up to , which agrees with experiments very well.
