Holga Turret Lens - Ebay disaster?


Having fun with my Pentax Q. Bought goofy Holga Turret lens. Sample pics in ad show cheezy fixed focus results but on the Q body I was not able to get anything remotely focused. Played with it a bit and the lens needs to be about 6mm further away from the sensor in order to work on the Q. Looks like a design flaw unless the one I received was defective. Asked vendor to withdraw this auction until he tests the product but it is still listed. Just giving people a head's up. I've returned it ($10 more down the drain) and hopefully will get refund.
