Feihua 25mm f/1.4 CCTV $40 lens on EP-2

Got the idea from someone here actually... Just got it and tried it out today...

It's a tiny little lens with quite a bit of character... I like the sort-of Holga-like effect, the smeary edges and swirly bokeh. It's certainly a lot of fun to play around with. You're certainly not going to buy this lens to be the sharpest one in your kit, but maybe the most unique! LOL

Cosmicar/Pentax 25/1.4

Amy, I've got a similar lens, a Cosmicar/Pentax 25/1.4 CCTV C-Mount lens, and you'd be surprised at how sharp this one is in the center of the frame - it easily rivals the Lumix 20/1.7!

Anyways, those little lenses are really great fun to play with!

They are great fun! I'm going to look forward with playing with it all holiday weekend

I'm not sure I'd say this one rivals the Panny 20 f/1.7 in sharpness at the center, but it's certainly sharp enough... and surprisingly so!
