I have no use for this probe lens (nor the creativity )but for those who do, being LAOWA wouldn't/shouldnt be a concern. I've seen really cool stuff done with it for product B-roll.
*Just realised that you said $ so I assume you're on the other side of the pond and therefore different rules. 200$ to send a lens back really sucks indeed.
