    Hi Frank, have you tried just using one half of some of the lenses that you may already have.

    Like using a non-convertible lens as a convertible ? can be fun, can be VERY swirly.


    downside is you get to miss all the fun of a new lens ...

    All this hoo-ha about swirly bokeh. Lenses that show edge aberrations are no good. What I think would be better is a lens that swirls in the middle, but is really sharp and high fidelity on the edges! Instead of "swirly bokeh" we could call it a "Coriolis effect." Now that'd be cool huh? Wouldn't it, huh? wouldn't it?
