9mm super-thin lens that can be used as a body cap. With a 3-group, 3-element, all glass construction, this can be used as a single focal length wide-angle lens equivalent to 30mm (equiv. 35mm). With a wide angle and deep depth of field, it can be used as an everyday deep focus lens and can also be controlled with manual focus. The closest shooting distance is 30cm. Because it is equipped with a protective lens barrier, you can throw the camera in your pocket without worrying about damaging the lens. You can use this lens as a body cap for quick, easy and fun snapshots. Image stabilisation is also possible when this lens is used with an OM-D or PEN series camera equipped with the in-body image stabiliser feature.
