Cheap and cheerful lens

This 9mm lens is great for fast, instant shooting without the price tag. Kitted with five glass elements in three groups, the two aspherical elements offer a generous field of view for great snaps. This Olympus 9mm fisheye body cap lens is a fun lens to work with every day or on your travels.

Ultra slim 0.5-inch lens

At just half an inch, the Olympus 9mm fisheye body cap lens has an ultra-slim, sleek profile that sits flush on the camera body. Its an ideal lens for street photography, portrait snaps or to take away with you on your travels. A fun lens to work with, it’s great for everyday photography. It packs away without bulk, making it super portable and easy to carry around with you.

Shoot up and close

The 18mm equivalent lens makes it easy to shoot close-ups, whether it’s getting right up to the detail in portraiture or snapping delicate nature shots. Whether you’re perfecting portraits or getting some great snaps of pets, children or nature, you’ll be able to capture shots with a good balance of brightness and contrast with this Olympus 9mm fisheye lens.

Manual or auto focus

The small lever makes it easy to switch over to manual focus to regain control over settings. Set the function to Deep Focus to excel at distance shots or Close Up to work with subjects as close as 8 inches away. Or if you prefer the camera to do the thinking, snap away in autofocus for ease of quick and accurate shooting.

Create sharp images without distortion

Even though it’s small, the Olympus 9mm fisheye body cap lens packs a punch, with two aspherical elements that achieve sharpness and remove distortions. Colour aberrations are minimised to give clarity in your images. The five glass elements in three groups gives edge-to-edge sharpness and good control of colour.

140 degree angle

The Olympus 9mm fisheye has the ability to reach an expansive 140-degree angle of view to pack more into the frame with wide, fisheye effect, offering a creative lens to play with. The fisheye distortion makes for a fun field of view to experiment with. It’s best suited to being used outdoors where there’s lots of light to achieve the best lighting contrast.

Micro four-thirds mount

Designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, it’s a compact little design that can be easily taken around with you. The shallow but wide depth of field makes the Olympus 9mm fisheye an excellent companion for travel and everyday shooting.
