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 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.

Quirky but fun!
Surprisingly decent images. I use it primarily as a lens cap for one of my three Olympus OM bodies while packed en route to my destination, but it has proven to be useful as an emergency grab and go semi-wide when my main body has had a tele-zoom attached and the image would not wait.

All around body cap and fun to use!
I keep this on my E-M1 whenever there isn’t another lens on the camera. A few times I grabbed the camera and fired off a few shots that were just plain fun. Not something I’d print and hang on the wall but great for social media. At a price of $99.00 you can’t go wrong.

Just for fun...
Fun little lens. Stuck on my pen mini since I bought this. Very handy and easy to use.
