Solid build, intuitive use, price,and creative "character" of the lens make it stand out.
No lens cap possible, strong and direct light sources can overwhelm it and there is a tendancy to get some fingers in the angle of view if you aren't paying attention and your hand "thinks" it wants to grip the focus ring.
You might consider it a "toy" or "novelty" lens, but it delivers very usable imagery. Think "pinhole lens on steroids" as a referenece point. Not purely lomo, but lomo-esque in use to capture and throughput to the final edited work. I found the lens both motivational and very productive when matched to shoot perameters. I got a high acceptable rate among images captured during an urban decay shoot.
I have no problem seeing use for this lens in many applications from street shoots to lanscapes, portraiture, still lifes, or any general use.
