New Lens

A new “specialty” lens arrived today! It’s am Olympus BCL-1580 “Body Cap” lens, which has the dubious distinction of having the worst DxOMark rating ever! It has a fixed aperture of f/8 and a manual focusing lever. There are no electronic contacts. However, it is cheap, there’s no need to focus if the subject is more than a few feet away, and it is tiny! At 15mm (30mm equivalent), it makes for a really great street photography lens. Now I just need to live in a city with interesting streets…
