The "BEST, WORST LENS" in the Universe

Well, here it is. No, I won't sell it. It is so bad that when wanting to close focus, the lens unscrews and literally falls out of it's housing

I love it

Viva la HOLGA!!!!

That seems like it should be the kit lens.

I would sell my entire lens set for that boy right there...

A K-mount Holga lens. Nice.


The picture quality reminds me of a mustard jar. Or the EF-S 18-55.
