Trying it for macro photography, kinda works.
Admittedly I haven't shot with this much at all, but trying it with 26mm spacers turns this into a decent and small macro lens.
The best point and shoot lens out there today!
Are you looking for a lens that does it all, while also being simple enough to stuff in a bag and forget about until you need it? Well here's your answer. I slapped this bad boy on my Fuji X-A2, enabled the shoot without lens setting, and was off to the races. I find that this lens is perfect for medium range situations, where you want everything to have detail, without drawing to a specific eyeline in particular. For me, this took the form of some landscapes on a hike, and also a few pictures of a plane crash that we came across on the hike. While the lack of options and settings on the lens might frighten some people, I found it to be really freeing. I felt as if I was focused more on what was happening past the lens, rather than on how to make the lens capture everything beyond it. However, I do have some gripes with it though. I wish it did come with a cover for the front element while it was on the camera, but I can excuse it as it is so cost effective. A lens hood would also be appreciated. Finally as mentioned in the first section, my Fuji X-A2 did not recognize the lens as being attached. I presume this is due to the lack of electronics, but it is a minor headache if you aren't aware of this beforehand. Put simply, yes you should buy this lens. And at the price, you really can't beat it. 5/5
I would stay away from color shots as the vignette is very purple. For the price, it's a good knock about for quick shots.
For the price, it is just okay. A gadget for sure. Slap it on and use as a point and shoot. Purple fringing was horrendous on my Sony a6000. Sharpness is not great, but serviceable. If you are low on cash and want a wide lens, go for it.
What a fun lense
I got this for my Canon m50 mark II. It's a great lense to play with. I love using it for landscape and street photography
Don't think, just shoot for Fujifilm X
This lens takes decent photos and is fun to slap on my X-E3 and especially my X-Pro1 when I want to have one of those in a pocket as I walk around the city doing some errands. When it's on, I treat it like my old Lomo LC-A camera - don't think, just shoot.
Fun lens with vignetting
For the price I'm happy with this lens and have a lot of fun with it. I love for Fujifilm film simulations look with the vignetting. It's quite fun to play around with and more easier to get satisfying results than with lomography film. At the moment I'm leaving on either my X-T3 or X-T1 to use like a point & shoot when I'm out and about. If you're wanting a body cap style lens and vingetting sounds like fun to play around with then I'd absolutely recommend this. If you'd like to turn your mirrorless camera into a point & shoot to travel with I'd recommend it, but temper your expectations when comparing to better lenses. If you want super sharp images then I'd recommend looking other lenses.
Awesome Lomography niche lens
If you compare this to standard zoom or prime le ses, it will seem disappointing due to some softness and vignetting that is somewhat heavy. But, if you remember that this is a novelty lens, and only useful for certain types of photos, you'll end up loving it. This.lens is the bomb for street photos. The vignetting created a mood, and helps highlight the subject as lo g as you keep them within the center 1/3 of the photo. With ithis lens attached, my Fuji XT20 can fit into any pocket. Awesome!
