The 30mm equivalent Olympus 15mm f/8 Body Cap Lens is a funky fixed-focus, fixed-aperture lens the size of a body cap. With a depth of only 9mm, the Olympus 15mm f/8 Body Cap Lens slips easily into a jacket pocket. When mounted to a camera like the PEN lite or PEN mini, it enables quick, spur-of-the moment snaps that require no effort to set focus or aperture. Featuring a built-in lever that enables shooting in the macro range, the Olympus 15mm f/8 Body Cap Lens will go on sale in October for £70.

Olympus Press Release

15mm (30mm*) 1:8.0 Body Cap

An ultra-slim cap and flexible, fixed-focus, fixed-aperture lens in one; this is an ideal first accessory for the powerful new PEN Lite and PEN mini. PEN cameras famously combine portable dimensions with ease-of-use for goanywhere SLR-quality imaging, and the Body Cap stays true to that philosophy. It adds a mere 9mm to the depth of your camera so you can still slip it into a jacket pocket with the confidence that sensitive components will be safe from dust, scratches and smears. When you pull it out again, you’ll be able to capture subjects on the spur of the moment from one metre to infinity – with no need to focus and without attaching a fullsized lens. For close-ups, there’s a lever to extend the focus range to just 30cm from your subject.

The 15mm 1:8.0 Body Cap lens for PEN is a bargain at just £70.
