    I forgot I had this lens and now I have the GX1 I thought I would try it out. It's IQ is rubbish BUT it gives that Holga OOF magic. I love it!!!! It's good when brilliant stuff costs next to nothing! These images render well in Black and White too!

    Inspired me to dig out my Holga lens! Alas, it's for the Olympus μ4/3 rather than the Panasonic..... ;-)

    Have a holga for medium format, have a lens adapter for my canon, and the holga lenses, cheap plastic wonderfulness. Great photos!
