OK, that's amusing. Far worse than the kit lenses, I'd say.

I didn't try very hard, but there is some sharpening and the "clarity" slider in Lightroom is turned all the way up.

Gonna try the pinhole cap next. (K-mount body cap w/ pinhole.)

Wollensak, Bell&howell, Kern, Kodak, Schneider, any of these C mount lens in 15mm-20mm range will do better than this.
