25mm Holga + GH2
Jun 2, 2011

I received my Holga 25mm f/8 lens today for my GH2.

The Holga lens is mechanically nicer than I expected. Focus is very stiff but smooth. The lens glides onto the mount. It comes with a front and rear push-on lens cap. Rather than a traditional circular aperture, it instead uses a zone plate(?) (I'm not sure if I have the correct word--it doesn't quite look like a zone plane, it rather has additional holes drilled around the central big hole, similar to Lensbaby's soft focus optic, leading to some rather peculiar bokeh).

Delivery was shockingly fast considering I ordered it from a Hong Kong eBay seller, but that's neither here nor there...

I like it, and I can think of worse ways to spend $20.
