Olympus mZD 9mm f/8 fisheye bodycap lens

introduction

  • introduced in Jan 2014
  • inexpensive (~$99) very thin fun lens (hence “bodycap”)
  • quite good image quality for a lens of this type however VERY soft in the corners, and lacks contrast and punch of a conventionally designed lens whilst not being as wide a field of view nor as close focusing as a normal fisheye lens

specs

  • 140 degree field of view rectilinear fisheye (ie. it does not give a circular image)
  • manual focus down to 0.2m via a lever on the front which also acts as lens cap barrier
    • you can set it to the middle focus position which practically gives focus from 0.5m to infinity
  • fixed aperture at f/8
  • no electronic communication with camera
  • 5 elements in 4 groups including 2 aspherical elements
  • 56mm diameter x 12.5mm thick
  • only 30g
