Product Overview

Olympus 9mm F8 Fisheye Body Cap Lens is a manual-focus ultra wide-angle prime lens for Micro Four Thirds-mount. It covers the MFT image circle. Introduced by Olympus in 2014, it has 5 elements in 4 groups. It has a unique "body cap" form factor.
As an ultra wide-angle prime lens that is quite compact, the Olympus 9mm F8 Fisheye can be an interesting supplement for those occasions where a normal lens just won't do. Even though the lens is not stabilized, at this focal range it does not usually matter. In fact, some may be able to get cleaner corners without image stabilization.
