    This is a very fun lens to use. It is not stellar in image quality but then it is not poor either. I would rate it good. I've gotten many very good photos with it. It is a "One Trick Pony" as some would say. It does one thing, but it does that one thing quite well. It is absolute simplicity and can fit in a shirt pocket, just don't forget to take it out before you do your laundry. It weighs almost nothing. It is slow but in good light or even indoors with a steady hand or good image stabilization it can do some impressive things. So fun, just don't expect it to perform like a several hundred dollar lens. For less then $100 US it is quite amazing though.
