Body Cap Lens

Turn your OM-D into a really compact camera with the new Olympus Body Cap Lens (BCL-1580). It is so named because it is as thin as a body cap and yet is a fully functional lens. Imagine a compact camera with the controls of a fighter jet.

At around USD 50 it is the cheapest and lightest lens in the m4/3 growing arsenal but is it useable or practical at a fixed f8 aperture? Off the bat, I like the sliding lens cap and the hyperfocal distance preset for manual focus.

I will be testing it with real world subjects over the weekend and hope to post some pics and comments.
