SLR Magic Toy Lens unboxing

This little package arrived on Valentine's Day. It's SLR Magic's Toy Lens (26mm f/1.4) for Micro Four Thirds cameras. My wife bought it for me after hearing me talk about it for days on end. Yes, she loves me! Was first convinced about getting this lens from Steve Huff's blog. So far, it's proven to be a fantastic and fun lens. It's super bright, super swirly, and I've been loving it all week. Before I upload samples, here's an unboxing:

We got the Toy Lens from ebay. The seller is from Hong Kong. The lens itself costs around US$80 with US$20 for shipping. It takes 2-4 weeks to ship. Ours arrived in 4 weeks. No customs fees were charged at the post office. Sweet.

There's space on the lens for two baller-band-type focus rings. So cute.

UPDATE: When I bought the lens, it was just $80 (P3,500) plus $30 (P1,300) shipping.

Now, SLR Magic is selling it for $110!!!
