Re: Olympus 8mm Bodycap vs Samyang 7.5mm - thoughts?

Read a few reviews that suggested the Body Cap is a bit more of a lens than a toy.

I know Robin Wong could take a good photo with an etchasketch but he was reasonably complimentary.

I also found a couple of Flickr groups

So MPB had one in mint condition for a very attractive price so I've bitten the bullet. I'll find out if that was a mistake next week - thanks for your thoughts.
If I really like it maybe I'll look at getting the "proper lens" at some point.
