The Funleader 18mm f/8 cap lens was first launched on Kickstarter back in 2019, and it was quite successful raising about $35,000 USD.
The lens itself is an 18mm full-frame tiny pancake lens with a fixed aperture of f/8 that doesn’t require autofocus. It has a depth of field from about 2.6feet to infinity, so you can just point and shoot and everything should be in focus.
I ordered one of these to try out. I don’t expect L lens quality, but I do like to switch up the look of my shots at the lens instead of in post.
You can now purchase the Funleader 18mm f/8 cap lens on ebay for the RF mount, as well as Sony’s E-Mount and Nikon’s Z-Mount. It’s relatively affordable for what it is at about $149 USD.
