Re: No Holga or Lensbaby tests?

Well if they made it any better they would have to charge real money for it, or start charging less for their better lenses

Of course this performance is to be expected. It is a lens cap after all. The photo samples I have seen are actually better than I would have expected. I thought the results would be on par with a plastic-lens Holga. In fact I thought that might be kind of fun.

I'm actually surprised that they tested this lens. Why not test a Holga or Lensbaby then? Expecting better results from a lens cap would be like testing a plastic Lensbaby and dinging it for being soft at the edges.
