Olympus Fisheye Body Cap Lens 9mm
Designed as a lens that doubles as a body cap, the Olympus Fisheye Body Cap Lens 9mm features 5 glass elements in 3 groups with 2 aspherical elements that provides a 140 degree field of view. A small lever enables manual focus and it has an infinity setting as well. Designed to accentuate the effects of Art Filters, the fixed aperture optical design creates a fun shooting and inexpensive shooting experience.
This basic fixed aperture fisheye lens for Micro Four Thirds system cameras offers a very wide field of view of 140 degrees, with the barrel distortion effect you’d normally expect from a fisheye lens.
Olympus 9mm f/8 Fisheye Body Cap Lens Verdict
Olympus’ tactic of playing down the optical performance of this lens need not be necessary. Even though this lens only costs $169.00 and is little more than a body cap with some glass in it, it is still capable of delivering decent quality images. Those who fancy experimenting with the fisheye look but don’t relish the thought of forking out proper fisheye money, this lens is ideal.
Overall, this lens is fun to use, thanks to its compact size and fuss-free operation.
Allowing instant shooting, the 9mm lens is a fun lens that allows for unique images to be captured.
