There's one camera accessory which you probably never, ever use — unless you're a professional who carries several cameras: the body cap.

But Olympus thinks that it can tempt you with a fancy body cap. What's more, it thinks that you'll pay £70 for it (around $114). Behold: The 15mm ƒ8 "body cap."
