I have that exact pillow! Mine doesn't float, however. I think I need a refund...
Across my Office there is a restaurant, and they had hung pillows on very tiny threads from the lights. I just took a photo and the tiny nylon threads are invisible against the bright sky. It was a tricky shot too co sit was windy. So I hold the pillow pressed the shutter half and gave my hand away and got the picture by pressing the shutter through.

A fun little lens. It's a bit slow (AF and f/2.8) for today's speed-rules world, but I'm fine with it. A few quick tests show me that when shot vertically its reach is equivalent to about 13mm shot horizontally, so I really don't need a wider prime if I stitch a few vertical shots together.

Resized and brightened in post, that's all.

I just ordered one of these online. Should have it in a few days.

I dont need it, lol. I love the PL15. But at under $100 i figured it was worth having a play around with.

I hadnt realised that the lens extends a millimeter or two on powerup! The auto focus is a bit agricultural, a bit noisy and hunting compared to more recent mft lenses. The 2.8 is obviously a bit slow, but really IBIS makes up for it in most uses. I'll just shoot it wide open all the time and see if i can learn how to best use this little thing.
