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 lenses in the same category.

Great little lens as long as you realize it is meant to be a lens cap plus a little extra. Image quality is pretty nice for what you get.Published 2 months ago by Richard E Clark
Nice and small size which makes my M4/3 camera small enough to fit into my handbag. Have had the cap open in my bag. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Melita
This is a cute idea, but I'm not sure it's all that practical. Works well as a lens cover that can be quickly used to take snapshots but it might be better to use a pancake lens... Read morePublished 3 months ago by William L. Cryer
What a kooky little lens. You have to go into this knowing what it is. I see some crappy reviews talking about the image quality and whatnot. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
I love this little lens. You can't beat it for the price. I use it on my Panasonic G5. Just mount it, set the camera on Aperture priority, set the focus to the hyperfocal click... Read morePublished 4 months ago by DaveL
