I have struggled to find the sweet spot of focus

Wanda K Bacon, Amazon
3 January 2015
  • Summary: I would suggest that anyone who purchases this...also purchase the class. I have struggled to find the sweet spot of focus. I have some very creative pics without the class but for the price of this item its best to just crowbar open that wallet and buy the class....too bad they don't offer the class free especially given the cost of this limited use lens.

This lens is awesome

Glen the dad, B&H Photo
29 September 2014
  • Excerpt: Honestly, this lens is awesome. I am not a "gear head" so I can't tell you that this lens is amazing at whatever whatever, but it is just genuinely fun to play with and has produced some exciting and unique images. Manually focusing the sweet spot isn't the easiest thing in the world, and takes some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it's just a blast to play with.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Slow Focus, Weak Casing

Creative fun

C Striker, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Really a fun lens. Allows you to be creative with ordinary shots and isolate your subject in a unique fashion. I really enjoy the potential of this lens and think anyone looking for something new to try to be more expressive with their photography should get this lens.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh

n accessory lens with dynamic focus

David, B&H Photo
6 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this for dramatic focus effects out of the camera. This is a novelty lens, something to buy when you essentially have most of the lenses you want, or don't mind spending a few bucks to get a limited-purpose tool. It permits you to play with a dynamic sweet spot, thanks to the ability of the user to change the axis of the lens with respect to the film/sensor plane. It takes some getting used to in order to get satisfactory results.
  • Pros: Durable, Dynamic Creativity, Dynamic Focus, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Inconsistent output, Long Learning Curve, No Automatic Functions

  • Summary: Even simple subjects look great with this lens, but I especially love the portraits I have taken with it! Fun to experiment with and I am loving the added atmosphere I can create with a simple tilt.

Very unique, easy to use but takes practice.

J. Campbell, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: To start, this is a very unique lens. It shifts the plane of focus to produce interesting out-of-focus effects. There are many different versions of the Lensbaby - I have only used this one. I am a wedding photographer by trade, but I also shoot nature and wildlife photography. This lens is easy to start with (if you understand what you are getting into), but requires patience and practice to get the photos you want out of it, and because of this, it can sadly turn away...
