    SLR Magic have revised the 11mm f1.4 toy lens to USD129.99 in a micro 4/3 mount. The lens is now coated and not supplied with a hood. Maybe I’m weird but I don’t see the value here, even at the revised price. The pinhole cap seem to be more interesting than something I can do on my iPhone for 2.49. But that's just me. Does anyone want to play with one of these?

    go here if you want to pre-order one.

    Not at that price.
    I agree, the Pinwide works for me at about 1/4th the cost!
    It is unique and unique does sometimes sell.

    Apparently they offer 3 different lenses. 35, 26 and 11mm. The joke is that those are el cheapo Fujian CCTV lenes. I own the 25 and 35 that I bought for $25 ea. plus $15 for the adapter.

    They have the nerve to sell the 26mm for $200.
