image of Olympus 9mm f/8 BCL-0980 Fisheye Body Cap Lens

(From Olympus lens literature) As creative as a body cap can get; It appears to be a protective body cap for your micro four-thirds camera, but this body cap also doubles as a fisheye lens.

The 9mm (35mm equivalent: 18mm) fixed-aperture F8.0 Fish Eye Body Cap lens is an ultra-slim accessory for creative wide-angle shooting through its 5-element, 4-group lens construction. The multi-use lens barrier MF lever switches from pan focus shooting to close up 8-inch shooting with a single press of the lever.

    For this price it is .. exceptionally FUN!
    Close focus little restricted. No electronic lens-info. No serious IQ off course.

    For the price it is unbeatable. With the EM10 it produces nice pictures. The focus settings need practising, even for a super wide you have to be carefull to focus correct. If not you lose a lot of contrast and detail. Compared to my 9-18 mft this bodycap does remarkably well and makes a lot of fun. Bewaren you do not get real IQ like with the normal m43 lenses.
