We took the lens we used for our Christmas portraits out during a sunny day to see how it works outside when there is lots of light. And it didn’t disappoint. It has a character that an optically perfect lens just doesn’t have and gives the photos a certain feel.

Sure, like many novelty lenses the look and feel is something that doesn’t suit every situation and isn’t something we would want in all of our photos, but every now and then it makes for a great change of pace. And the fact that it is manual focus only makes the photographer think a bit more as well.
