Handy; Great for Long Exposures
This lens is quite imperfect compared to any other entry level lens that Olympus has. With that said, it offers a decent cheap wide-angle perspective for only $50. This is great for street photography (as long as your images don't need to be very sharp), and it is surprisingly good at long exposures. Keep in mind that the lens is not trying to be a regularly made 15mm-- it's a body cap! It is like having a cool 120 format Holga, and easier to work with. Just adjust the focus to close, far, or infinity. You can really work this little lens great with the OI Share app and do unnoticed street photography with just your phone.

use your phone instead
So I got this thinking it'd be really fun and still take somewhat hight quality pictures. I was wrong. Pretty disappointed and makes the camera perform terribly. It does serve well as a backup cap, but thats about it. I wish it was at least decent because having a 9mm- 18mm equivalent would have been a nice addition, but I found I was better off using my phones camera which is what I was trying to avoid in the first place.

Pretty cool little lens
I like this lens because it is so tiny and is great for artistic shots. It's inexpensive and definitely worth it. While it is limited in it's capabilities, it is fun to use and takes impressive shots for it's size and price. It's a great lens to use for landscapes and it so tiny, it easily fits in any bag when it is on my EM-5 Mark II camera body. I love grabbing it on the go for some fast and quirky shoots.

It is a specialty lens for reasons.........
This is the type of a lens that focuses on just being a lens, a small one. It has visible vignetting, barrel distortion, soft edges. and no auto-focus. But it still manages to be extremely cheap and small. the only few scenarios in which this lens can be used is for selfies (for it's light weight and small size), a cheap way of photographing landscapes, and it can be used as a toy when it is used with art filters; it gives this retro feeling that photos where shot with an old lens, and that feeling can be expanded with photo editing. A reminder for people how will buy it for selfies: it does not have auto-focus.

Functional Bodycap
This Lens can be quite fun to use if you manage your expectations as you should considering the cost of this. It is especially useful with Olympus' in body Art Filters. Yes this Lens is slow at F8 and a little soft but considering the price it performs better than expected.
