    I've got to say, I'm pleasantly surprised by this lens. Definitely worth the $20 I paid for it:

    It really shines when paired with the 'Grainy Film' art mode:

    Yes, well I've heard it's something of a tradition to test new lenses on cats!

    Cats are usually handy for tests. BTW I really like the photos. I have a Holga lens on order, should be here in a few days. Now where is our cat?

    I can sort of see the point in it, but my feelings are that this takes a lot the fun out of using a Holga :rolleyes:

    Lol! My cat is also the handiest model for first tests of new lenses, and usually wants to play with the packing material as I am unwrapping my latest eBay treasures. The only problem is that he moves around rather too quickly for manual focus sometimes
