I don't have one yet, but if the manufacturer uses quality glass, it will 
magnify a little without distortion.  It only magnifies horizontally, though, 
making things longer without making them higher.

I have been thinking about getting one and setting it up backwards, with the 
bow in back.  It would give a sort of diarama effect.  Has anyone else tried
