I cringed half to death.

On the one hand, there's a certain appeal to practical effects over software filters.

On the other hand, junking a lens for no good reason is just turbo-cringe. This is what filters are for.

On the gripping hand, it's a Canon "Nifty Fifty", a fine lens but as cheap and common as dirt. It's like Bubba-izing a '43-dated round-receiver Tula Mosin. There's a blue million of 'em out there and they aren't anything special, so nothing of irreplaceable value was lost.
