dpreview conclusion

The Olympus Body Cap Lens 15mm F8 is a tiny, lightweight, inexpensive piece of kit that somehow squeezes a focusable three element lens into its 9mm-thick housing. Optically it doesn't win any plaudits, but in a way that's not really the point. Its real attraction lies in its portability and simplicity - you won't find a smaller lens.

Review of Olympus 15mm f/8 BCL-1580 Body Cap Lens
By: SLR Gear

It's an interesting idea that seems to work well: instead of putting a body cap on your micro four thirds camera, put on this body cap lens, creating an ultra-portable point and shoot style camera. Recommended!
