    Interestin shot, bokeh is little harsh here... Vignetting is natural or added?

    I think that the lens has got image circle of 2/3" and nex needs roughly 1" one so there is some vignetting allways.

    Fun lens anyway.

    yeah the bokeh is a little harsh.. i shot this handheld and like xXx1 said the image circle is tiny when you shoot wide open with this lens... the vignetting was added as well.. thanks for lookin

    Nice shot! For a $30 toy lens, this thing is impressively sharp. The vignetting/circular bokeh/light leaks add visual interest--not something you'd want from a $200 lens, but for the price I wouldn't consider those to be insurmountable flaws. I actually like the circular bokeh :).

    tested the lens out in the garden the other day; below is a sample pic with a 100% crop. focusing without some sort of assisted magnification on my 3N is a huge pain though. SOOC except for very minimal white balance correction.

    Lovely work.

    Was this a staged moment, or a gotcha moment.
