Update: Lens seller contacted me and very politely asked to consider giving a better review. So I added one star (truth in reviewing). The reason that I upgraded my rating is that my initial reaction was on the tail of having played with $300-$500 lenses. Not really fair. My update thus includes that fact that for less than 5-10x the price of a mainstream lens you get a lens that has some unique characteristics that might be useful in many types of photography.

The lens is well-made, metal lens barrel & hardware, comes with end caps, and has coated lenses. For $26 dollars the lens is a good deal DEPENDING on your expectations. Having spent more time with it, I believe these are probably made for automated visual inspections. Focus and F are manually controlled and continuous (no click stops). There is a filter thread that appears to be 37mm BUT a standard 37mm filter does not fit - it would be nice, if this were a standard thread.

Limitations:
This lens does NOT allow infinity focus on Olympus PEN E-PL5 with Photodiox C-mount adapter. Perhaps with another c-mount adapter the lens would achieve full focus. It is only good as a close-up lens or portrait lens where the subject is within 8ft. Things that are further away will simply not come into focus. The front and back elements have antireflection coating BUT there is still a lot of visible flare if shooting toward light sources. As this is a c-mount lens, as expected, there some vignetting at the corners is expected and apparent.

Good points:
Only $26, small-size, metal barrel, coated optics, shipped quickly and well-packaged. For the subject matter kept within the minimum focus and 8ft, at F1.4 you will get a fairly sharp region in the center of lens with softening as you move away from the center.

This is a little gem and really surprised me with the quality of the pics I could capture.
I wish there was a fish eye and a wide angle version in this price range.
Takes some time to play with so you know how to cull all the good points but worth it.
Totally manual and in some cases a little it or miss but brings the sense of fun and adventure back into photography
for me.
Have the 25 and find this , though a more narrow field of vision to be the better of the two for my purposes.

I suspect this is identical to the RainbowImaging 50MM F1.4 TV Lens, but I couldn't find that at the time, and this one is cheaper anyway. I'd be interested to know if they are different.

Performance is very similar to the RainbowImaging 35MM F1.7. Sharpness is maybe a little bit better off-center (this is NOT based on any kind of objective test, just first subjective impression). Vignetting is worse, more like the RainbowImaging 25MM F1.4. The vignetting seems to be off-center; there is more on the right than the left. (Using a Panasonic G6, a Micro Four Thirds format camera.)

No adapter is included, but the ones that came with the above RainbowImaging lenses (for Micro Four Thirds) work fine. I'm getting a focus range of about 20.5 inches to not-quite-infinity. With a minimal macro extender (Fotodiox Macro Extension Tube Set in its shortest configuration) the focus range is only something like 6.5 inches to 7.5 inches, but vignetting is reduced.

I love the softness of this lens for taking pictures of cats. If you're looking for sharpness or high contrast, this is not the lens you want.

The listed specs are probably incorrect. The front element is only about 28mm across, so assuming the focal length really is 50mm, it's more like f/1.8 at most.
