The Olympus 9 mm Body Cap Fisheye Lens is an inexpensive way to get creative with the world of fisheye photography. The lens also doubles as a body cap protecting your sensor from dust and other pollutants.

With an equivalent 35mm focal length of 18mm, the fisheye delivers an ultra-wide 140° field of view, great for immersive, crowded cityscapes and street scenes.

The lens construction is made up of 5 elements in 2 groups including 2 aspherical elements which have been utilised to minimise spherical aberrations and distortion. A constant f/8.0 aperture works well with the wide angle perspective to ensure sharpness across the entire scene.

Weighing a mere 30 grams the Olympus 9mm Fisheye Body Cap lens (BCL-0980) is compatible with any Micro Four Thirds mount camera. Its compact and unobtrusive design makes it a great option for remaining inconspicuous and ‘shooting from the hip’.

Note: Lens is manual focus only. In camera image stabilisation should be disabled to ensure sharp images.
