    The full size link doesn't work, at least for me right now.

    Looks good enough of a lens from what I can tell by the small image. I never doubted that it would be worth the 40 some bucks it costs. I'm sure there are plain lens/body caps that cost that much. I spent more than that on a hood and fast shipping for my 11-22mm once. If I knew I was going to use mFT for a while I'd pick one up.

    Lots of vignetting, not very sharp...just like a pin-hole camera

    Yes, it is. Centre is 'sharp' but soft at corners, a little bit better than pin hole only.......

    I don't see the point of this lens.

    Firstly, its pretty crappy with all the vignetting.

    Secondly, don't you always have some lens attached to the body anyway?

    Did you see what it costs? It's cheaper than pinhole lenses and Lensbabies.

    Its still not free.

    You can get that pinhole effect with a couple of clicks in photoshop without having to remove your regular lens.

    I'm actually going to pick up this lens. I thought it would be fun for walking around town street shooting. It's all about fun right?

    Too sharp in the center and not enough vignetting for my taste

    The vignetting and unsharp corners is the whole point of this lens - it is for us who wants the Lomo/Holga look but don't use Instagram. That it is small enough to double up as a cover is just a side benefit.

    It's just for fun - that's right.
