The Olympus Body Cap Lens 15mm F8 is a tiny, lightweight, inexpensive piece of kit that somehow squeezes a focusable three element lens into its 9mm-thick housing. Optically it doesn't win any plaudits, but in a way that's not really the point. Its real attraction lies in its portability and simplicity - you won't find a smaller lens.
Scoring is relative only to the other products in the same category.
The BCL-15mm 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 - just 9mm thick - that it can easily be mistaken for a camera-mount body cap. With three glass lens elements in three groups, it can be used as a wide-angle lens equivalent with a single focal length of 30mm (35mm camera equivalent). In addition to daily use as a "pan-focus" lens featuring a wide angle, fixed f8 aperture and deep depth of field, it is compatible with manual focusing using a lever and capable of close-up shooting as close as 30 cm. A lens-protection barrier is provided so the lens can be mounted permanently on the camera and even put in a pocket together with the camera.

I chose this as my primary wide angle lens after comparing the Panasonic 14mm 2.5 on dpreview. Primarily for the cost and for me, this focal length is handy to have along the road... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Kindle Customer
Fun little lens. The 15mm opens up to many wide shots but the low-low fstop makes this lens not something I'd relay on. Read morePublished 2 months ago by pgodlewski
This lens is interesting. The f8.0 means you'll need a decent amount of lighting to get a good shot, but it's possible to do without to much trouble. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Nathaniel J. Swartz
I received the lens very quickly from the seller, and would buy from them again, but not sure about this lens, it's great for close up shots, and for creative shots, and can be fun... Read morePublished 3 months ago by MR NEIL R HENKEN
