I was interested in buying one just to play around with, and to do some creative shots for my casual and wedding work :cheese

I think Talvan was going to get one of these. Apparently, they work quite well. Looking forward to what you have to say about it.

I purchased it from their website yesterday, so hopefully I should be getting it within this week. I'll be sure to post samples and a little review :D

A coworker just got one of these. I played with it for a few hours, it is odd in a cool way. It definitely takes getting used to, it is a very simply thing and is easy to use, but not so easy to use well.

I only took a few shots with it, only 1 of those stood out as anything neat. And it's at work, so I can't post it. Sorry. :L

Alberto, I had seen one of these in one of my catalogs about 6 months ago. I am highley interested in it. Unfortunately I am looking at a few other lenses first, but eventually I plan on getting one. I wonder if they will make a 35mm(50mm equivilant) version for DSLRs, since the 50mm version will be more like a 75mm on a DSLR. I would love to see some samples that you take with it, also what you like and dont like about it.

Matt, what did you like and dislike about it?
Sincerely,
John Talvan

Yes, let us know how it meters (if at all), how it feels holding on to that bendy lens with one hand while holding onto the body with the other, while trying to trigger the shutter. I'm interested in one as well, but not sure exactly how usefull it will be.

It kind of looks like something you could buy at Home Depot for under $15 in the plumbing department.

Or something that would happen if you dropped your camera and messed up the lens :clown

Very cool - I have looked at them before and am very undecided on wether or not they are worth it. I'm anxious to see some of your examples.
