Olympus 15mm f/8 Bodycap Lens Review



Olympus 15mm f/8 Bodycap Lens Review

Olympus 15mm f/8 Bodycap Lenses don't come much more basic than this. At just 22 grams and 9mm deep, the 15mm is essentially a plastic body cap with a basic, there element lens set into it. There's no aperture blades (it's f/8 and lump it) and no AF, just a small lever that manually fine tunes the focus from 30cm to infinity.

It's designed to act as a body cap that can stay on your camera so you can shoot quick grab shot straight out of the bag. It's also a great way to carry you M43 camera in a jacket pocket, which you couldn't do with a normal lens attached.

For everyone else, the 15mm should be considered a fun novelty item. It has no electrical contracts, so the camera will display a "lens not found" message until you activate the menu's "shoot without lens" option.

Image quality, as you'd expect, is about as far away as you can get from Olympus's other new lens, the awesome 75mm f/1.8. Images aren't truly sharp anywhere, but are even softer towards the edges. Vignetting and chromatic aberration also appear. But image quality isn't what this lens is about. In fact, it's probably best used with the cameras art filters, such a Toy Camera mode. The downside is that, while (Click here For Prices) is cheap for a lens, it's steep for a novelty. In the US, its cheap also, it's a more tempting proposition.
