Well I have been kind of excited about the arrival of the cheap, plastic Holga lens that I ordered last month from ebay. With the Postal strike in Canada starting just days after I placed the order - I knew that I was in for a little bit of a wait. And so it arrived in the mail box today. Talk about cheap (price wise) at $18.88 - - - although on further examining of the lens you begin to wonder if that price is a rip off. it is about as cheaply built a lens as you could expect (all plastic), there is lots of slop in the mount, and the focusing ring is rather stiff. But man is it fun to use, and it actually looks pretty handsome on my E-PL1. A wonderful feature of the E-PL1 is the ability to zoom in while focusing, making it much easier to get accurate focus - which is especially a challenge with this slow f8 lens. Also Exposure appeared to be set automatically so all I had to do was set the camera to Auto ISO, Program Mode, focus and shoot. I also tried a couple of the Art Filters for some fun. I had never tried the Soft Focus and find it much more usable than I anticipated (the LCD graphic shows blown highlights). Anne and I headed out to Tim Hortons for a coffee and so I took the camera along to play with the settings and take a few shots. All were taken at 2000 ISO.
