  • Excerpt: The lens is not bad for the price, but it' not a full frame lens. Other that that it is still usable with my full frame camera. I had to set my Sony a7r to crop C. The imaging and sharpness are good. I am not sorry that I bought this lens because this completes my lenses.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction

Great Lens for a reasonable price.

  • Excerpt: This is a great manual lens with a focus as close as 1/2 inch it's almost impossible to get a poor image. I used this product for the first time at a sunflower field. Every picture taken was acceptable, very clear and crisp.

  • Summary: Everything I expected and more. Super fun lens. Easy to use. Easy to learn. Hold the camera body well away from your body to keep from getting your feet in the frame!

exactly as advertised on DSLR

  • Excerpt: This Lensbaby fisheye does exactly as advertised: creates a lovely circular image on DSLR cameras. Also tried it on converter on my micro four thirds Olympus E-m5 camera and it crops the image to lose the top and bottom of the circle, but still creates a nice wide image.

My new favorite lens. Back in the days of Nikon coolpix ...

Julian Cash, Amazon
24 March 2015
  • Summary: My new favorite lens. Back in the days of Nikon coolpix 950 and 990, I had a screw on fisheye lens. Terrible chromatic aberration, but I didn't care. I could get within a quarter inch of the subject and still get focus. Now I can get this once again with my SLR. Automatic focus would sure be nice.
