Oh my, Holga Pentax lens

I just recently found out about the interesting world of lomography. Looking around online found this little gem.

pentax

Apparently you can take the crappy PLASTIC lens from the Holga camera and mount it on your Pentax DSLR for lomo like shots. Thats just nuts!

Anybody use one of these?

Yeah, I made one myself a while ago (why pay twice the price of the holga for just the lens? Just go buy a holga for about $20 and attack it with a dremel tool - put it on an old body cap).

Wasn't exactly pleased with it - primarily, it didn't focus well (laugh!) - I had to move my body to focus it, even with the "twist focus" retained on the lens. Oh yeah, and I also tried mounting it on a flexible tube, a' la lensbaby. Not entirely pleased with that either.

A holga takes better pictures than a holga lens on a great dSLR =)
