Holga 135pan - anyone have this?

I've been eyeing the Holga 120pan and the 120wpc for a while now but have backed out because I really don't feel like increasing my 120mm film output. However I noticed that the 135pan takes 35mm film which is much more convenient to process and more cost effective (at this point). Does anyone have one? I've seen a few pics here and there but nothing substantial. Some impressions and thoughts would be very helpful for me especially the pinhole lens

I have it for one year or so. Very nice and light camera.
At $90 they are overpriced, but I was able to get it from B&H under adequate price for $55. Sold my last week for $25...

Soft at corners, reasonably sharp on the center. Does good job for panoramic shots with main object in the middle.
Pinhole size is not supported by my iPhone app. Hard to calculate long exposure.

Ko.Fe have you also shot the 120mm version? I'am trying to decide between the 2

No. Lomography style panoramic shots on MF are too expensive for my film budget. I'd rather spend money of bulk b/w 135 film.

Thats exactly my sentiment and the primary reason that's stopping me with the 120 version. Thanks for the links. Exactly what I wanted to see
