 +===== Facts =====
 +  *  the strangest lens: strange to use and you get strange results
 +  *  estimated retail price 200 EUR for the base and double class optic
 +  *  in my use from 1/2010 to current date
 +  *  I currenlty have the base, double class optic, single class optic, soft focus optic and the creative aperture kit
 +===== Pros =====
 +  *  if you are looking for something different then this could be it
 +  *  is not a toy
 +  *  rather nice images in terms of colors, contrast and sharpness compared to the toyish appearance of the lens
 +  *  swappable optics means that you can do a lot with this lens
 +  *  the base and double class optic is a good starting package since double class optic is often the most useful optic
 +===== Cons =====
 +  *  you have to invest not only money, you have to invest time to learn
 +  *  is 111 percent manual: focusing is manual and aperture disks (black rings) are changed manually
 +  *  the swappable optics means that you can can keep on buying more and more
