Fun, fun, fun.

Wonderful tool. Sweet spot tack sharp. Easy to use and lots of fun. A bit of slack in focusing ring.

Fun to create effect

By

from Cromwell, CT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Fun little lens. I've seen some pretty creative photos taken with it and had to try it myself. I just wish it supported auto-focus. It can sometimes be tough to get the subject that you want to be in focus really sharp when you're looking through a tiny view finder and tilting the lensbaby. Just take your time and manually focus for some pretty cool results. If it did support auto-focus, just imagine the action shots you could get with one of these! (in case the manufacturer is reading)

So much fun!

By

from Denver, CO  -  Semi-pro Photographer

When I first started in photography all I wanted was the camera to do everything for me. Now, I am a control freak. And, how fun is it to change the apeture with a magnet and rings. And, the Lensbaby gives such an awesome effect. Don't be afraid of the manual focus, it will help you remember to concentrate on a picture.

Great item explore new areas

By

from VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

great item I've used it only for past 2 weeks, having alot of fun with it. I've learned however that in the camera preview pane the sweet spot can appear in focus when you actually have the sweet spot only near the subject and not at the subject. Since the sweet spot is so small it is really important to get it in the right place or the viewer's eye will go to the wrong spot when looking at the photo.

Not worth it at any price

By

from Chicago Il  -  Photo Enthusiast

This thing is garbage simple as that. It's an outdated concept that doesn't interest most people.

Fun, toy lens

By

from Amherst, MA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Special purpose lens. I don't use mine very often, but I do like the results. Aperture changing is a little slow and annoying.

Get Artsy

By

from Tucson, AZ  -  Pro Photographer

I like to use it for photographing people; mostly engagements and weddings outdoors as you need a lot of light for it to work well (it's all manual). I have days when it works great, and days where I can't get a decent shot. Could be me...it takes practice, but I really like it when it works!
