Colpitts oscillator can be implemented using op-amp as long as we have an op-amp with proper bandwidth. Here is an example of such circuit:

high frequency colpitts oscillator circuit schematic diagram

LT1190  or LT1191op-amps is used to serve as an excellent gain stages. Limiting the gain is done by two Schottky diodes, that maintain the signal at approximately 11dBm. This circuit give a low distortion performance, the second harmonic is approximately 37dB down, limited primarily by the clipping action of the Schottky diodes.
