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.

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.
The small lever makes it easy to switch over to manual focus to regain control over settings.

Or if you prefer the camera to do the thinking, snap away in autofocus for ease of quick and accurate shooting.
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.
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.
