I bought this new really cheap lens.  Blonde and I tried it out last night.

Good:  for $9, I had low expectations, and kind of thought it might give a toy camera feel.  It does.  Also it was so cheap and came (from Japan, obv) so so fast.
Bad:  the lens is too long for my flash to reach a person.  So: shadows (and that super serious vignette).  Solution: daylight/no flash?  Buying a weird, tall flash from Japan?  We'll see.
Also bad: the threading doesn't quite match my camera, so it's pretty  hard to get on.

In general though, an pretty okay experiment.
