About Olympus 9mm F/8 Mirrorless

The Olympus BCL-9mm f8.0 Body Cap Lens serves as a body cap when carrying the camera around without its interchangeable lens, and transforms to become a pan-focus snapshot lens to capture images. The lens is so thin 12.8mm that it can easily be mistaken for a camera-mount body cap.

The 5 element, 4 group constructions lavishly consisting of lenses including two aspherical lenses makes authentic shooting possible. With the multi-use lens barrier MF lever, you can switch from pan focus shooting to close-up 20 cm shooting with a single press of the lever. Black and white color variations make it easy to coordinate with the camera body color.

Excellent when ''properly" usef

By

First, this is a FE lens. Second, it's fixed at f8.0. Third, there is no focus ring. You have focus settings instead. I set mine to the 2nd setting- deep focus. And I had a blast shooting landscape and with IBIS on my EM10, I was able to shoot inside a museum at 1/2 sec shutter speed too. This is a very fun lens to experiment with FE effects and priced at a level that should be affordable by many. Center is sharp. Edges are soft but acceptable.

Handy addition to the lens collection.

Handy to have on the camera as a body cap, always ready to grab a quick shot. Near fish-eye field very appropriate to use in close quarters where these spontaneous shots appear. Fixed f8 requires reasonable light level, but adequate for most purposes. Fish-eye distortion is as expected for this wide lens. Image quality is good.

I wanted to try a fisheye lens, but didn't want the expense. This lens fills the bill.

Works well and priced right

By

from Camp Hill Pa

I have been wanting a fisheye lens for quite some time but couldn't justify the price for the amount of usage it would get. This lens takes great fisheye shots for the price. It is not as good as the high end fisheyes but it costs less than 1/3 the price of the next cheapest lens. It is definitely 1000 percent better than the so called fisheye lens adapters. The vignetting is virtually nonexistent. I am pleased with this lens so far and having fun with it.
