    Interesting article. Seems the biggest difference is vignetting. The plastic lens does, the glass lens does not. That makes the decision easy for me. I prefer vignetting, to me it's the signature of the Holga. I still have my first Holga that I bought back in 2007. It is super sharp in the middle and vignettes wonderfully, especially in the top left corner, which goes almost black. A year later, in 2008 I bought another Holga so I could shoot two different films at the same time. I was disappointed at how different this new Holga was, not as sharp and didn't vignette quite as much. So I sold it. It really is true that every Holga is like a finger print, no two are alike.

    from what ive read the glass lens is "more dreamy" and the plastic lens has more bite. The vignetting is also different.

    I remember when the original glass-lens version (called the Woca) was out--the difference between it and the Holga 120S was negligible, and I have a hard time picturing that much could have changed since then.

    BTW, Freestyle has a new version of the Holga Manual out now in their store. They haven't put it up on their site yet, though.
