Olympus 9mm fisheye and the GM1
9 months ago

A while back, someone posted a question in this forum about whether there was a market for a higher-quality (and correspondingly higher-priced) body cap lens than the Olympus 15mm.  Well, that lens is here: the Olympus 9 mm  fisheye, and it may be just the thing to transform the GM1 into a true shirt-pocketable camera.  I'm getting one for sure--and it may lead me to sell the Sony RX100 that I've been holding on to because the GM1/12-32 does not pass the shirt-pocketability criterion. Of course, it's not a real replacement for any of the small zooms, including the 12-32, but I can see carrying the GM1/9mm in my shirt pocket, and another lens in a jacket pocket.  Optically, the 9mm must be a lot better than the 15mm.  (It couldn't be worse.)  And, at $99, the price is right.
