The 35mm (albeit mounted on a Samsung) was used in this video, which I really enjoyed watching. I think the effect, for film, was great:Being more of a film-maker then a photographer at this point, these toy lenses are really interesting...
>$100 for a "toy lens"? lol really

The price people will pay for the packaging. The Huff article also reminds me of why anyone reads his reviews in the first place.
Where can I get one? On eBay all day long for between $30 and $50. Didn't you see the link?Where else can you get a new F/ 1.4 lens for $100? A Lensbaby is over $250.
They actually can be used to a really nice effect. Not everybody want sharp images. As long as they are not sharp in the right way.
Except that it's been reported here and on other forums that the generic 35mm focal length CCTV lens does not vignette on m4/3's. So I'm not really buying the "properly modified" thing. The ONLY cool thing about it is that it comes with a lens shade. It just better be the best lens shade in the world since it costs about $75. lolYour adapted C-mount lens will vignette. The SLR Magic lens has been properly modified with a micro four thirds compatible mount such that it does not.
