We took the kids down to the seafront this afternoon, and despite the howling gale they had a good time running about on the beach and seafront. I was going to take my G9, as it's much easier to manage, especially when I'm chasing after Fin, but decided to take the 5D/Holga lens combo out for another spin. I didn't get anything particularly awe-inspiring, but do have two shots of Finley that I'll post, both of which will give you a good idea as to how this lens performs.

As you can see, the lens produces quite a soft image - not surprisingly considering it's made out of plastic - but what I do like is the bokeh, especially the varying degrees of distortion.
