    I have not tried one.

    I question the usefulness of such a lens though. I mean we spend thousands to get quality bodies only to put cheap glass on them?

    I'd expect a couple of uses for it, but after that it'd get dusty and end up being just another bit of junk cluttering up the cupboard.

    I never did get the whole lomo thing to start with anyway.

    a lot of people try to create an aged look in photoshop with thier photos, i have seen plenty on here just this week. rather than doing it in processing you get the oportunity to do it in the camera. holga cameras create a very specific style photo and i think if kyou are into that effect then an being able to do it with your DSLR without processing has gotta be a good thing.

    ummm, yep! I bought one for my canon. It was cheap and I thought I'd give it a go.....didn't really like it that much. Rather stick to my Holga, with film, instead of sticking a plastic bit in front of my 60D.

    Actually, I will take a few pics and upload them on to this thread, so you can see what it does!

    As you can see, nothing special!! It acts like a zoom, as I had to stand quite far away to get the wall and roses in the shot. I was hoping to get the apple tree in too, but I couldn't walk that far back!!!

    It doesn't do close ups too good - see the chamomile flower.
