lomography lovers (Holga, Diana, Polaroid + more)

Thought I would see if anyone else out there is a fan of the Lomo style. I have been collecting cameras found on www.lomography.com for awhile now plus a few Russian made cosmics and such. They're generally very basic and poorly made but for me and many others a soft lens and light leaks have that special charm about them specially in the all to perfect digital age.

Please post your stories and pictures

As a lot of the m4/3 lenses need software correction of lens aberrations maybe all you need to do is find a way of disabling the software correction to get the Holga effect.

I just find it amusing that people are using a variety of cheap lenses just to get the sort of image quality you get as standard with some Canon lenses.
