How many use and enjoy this lens still?

Sure! It's my pocket lens for my GX80,

I forgot to add that it's useful for close focus - my (original) version states 20cm as the minimum focus distance, but it will focus down to 16.5cm from the sensor. (I make that roughly 2.4/14.1 say 1:6 reduction - easily magnified to over 1:1 in a print.

Now it's relatively wide angle, but that can be very useful at times.


Yes, I found it very useful with the camera mounted on a copy stand. It allowed me to photograph full page drawings from an old Harper's catalogue.

At 100% view, I could not see any distortion in the copy at the page edges.
