    I have read about the body cap lens and some of the not so nice comments like, "Why?"

    Well, I like a challenge and thought, "Why not?"

    I put it on my new E-PL5 and took some pics of an abandoned building down the street.

    Here are two pics- color and B&W. I think for a $50 lens these came out ok.:smile:

    It does have limits, but it's not a terrible lens. I'm very happy with mine. Nice photos. :thumbup:

    This lens has a lot of potential. I really dig it. It's perm on my E-PL1. Nice shots!

    It's a century old lens design so it isn't as sharp as a modern lens, and it is a fixed F/8 which imposes some more limitations, but within those constraints you can use it the same as any lens and I keep being surprised by the results you can get if you're prepared to give something a go.

    It's nice to see someone try HDR with it.
