That's how I'm looking at it. I think I'm at about $12 including shipping. I had a couple hours of fun with it, so I can think of worse ways to spend $12.Fortunately, I only wasted $15 on it, so it's not the end of the world.
However, as with my last shot above, it can work as a bit of a dreamy portrait lens similar to a very old 135mm equivalent prime (It's 130mm equivalent f1.8 when used on the 45mm) . And it was decently sharp on the 60mm macro. I may try a few shots at the next dance recital so see how it works as a 90mm f2.8 for indoor action shots.
I'll still find some ways to use it and it's not even worth reselling anyway.
