Re: 9mm f8 fisheye lens cap

it looks like this new fisheye body cap will come in at around $100. If so, that's only $9 cheaper than the Nikon 50/1.8 sells for at B&H and the equivalent Oly lens, this new 25/1.8, will be three times as much.

Where is this format''s nifty-fifty?

Where is the 100 dollar fisheye in any other format?

Seriously, you are quite right. I was attracted by a 20/1.7 radically discounted because it was a shop display item, and it was more expensive than both the Nikon and Canon 50/1.8 in the same shop, non-reduced, perfectly new normal prices. It's only after the shop could not find the lens cap for the 20 that they gave a significant additional discount that the final price beat the Nikon but was still far from that for the Canon. At this point it was less than half price!

Looking for a standard lens in M43? Be prepared for double what others pay for theirs.
