Well this is possibly the cheapest lens in the world. My quick review - it's fun, but it's not easy to get good results out of it. Very soft beyond the centre, and wide open, slightly soft in the centre too.

At $30 there can be no complaints optically, but I would have liked it to just have had steps on the f/stop marks so you know for sure what you're shooting at.

Samples:

Very tough to get these kinds of shots with it. But ok. Some vignetting (no PP)

Softens by itself from the centre, not just DoF alone

But used properly is pretty nice

I have this lens but haven't shot very many photos with it. One of these days I'll give it a serious look. Thanks for the samples.

One thing this lens does superbly... and I mean really superbly, is baby photos. But I shall not plaster those all over here :p The "natural" soft focus + baby = match made in heaven
