Olympus 15mm Body Cap Lens for Micro 4/3, Black

Is It a Body Cap or a Lens? 

It’s Both. 

Olympus also introduces an intriguing new lens for its Micro Four Thirds line.  The BCL-15mm f/8.0 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.
