Olympus 9mm f/8.0 Body Cap Lens - Is It Any Good?

Olympus gets the credit for creating new breed of lens, "Body Cap Lens" with an introduction of m.Zuiko 15mm f/8.0 lens back in 2013.  It's an understatement to refer to these lenses as "pancake" lens since they are less than half inch thick (12.8mm).

It truly makes the camera appear as if there is no lens mounted on; as if just a body cap is mounted.  The image produced by this 9mm fisheye lens is surprisingly good, especially when you hear that it costs less than $100.  If you want to have some fun with fisheye lens there is no better option than this.
