  • Summary: I like the fisheye optic a great deal, but I've not yet had the change to experiment much with it as yet. On a cropped sensor one gets an ultrawide image with heavy vignetting (see attached example). One can get very close to the subject but the "sweet spot" pronounced as with other Lensbaby Optics.

Nice Fisheye

  • Excerpt: Good addition to Lens Baby Optic Swap System. Economical alternative to a standalone fisheye. Excellent fisheye image on full-frame. However, on a Canon crop-frame, it is not a lot different from than 10mm setting of Canon 10-22 zoom.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable

Great additions to camera system

  • Excerpt: I was so pleased with the basic Lensbaby, that I added this one to my camera bag. They give me the flexibility of creating in-camera effects like my Lomo cameras, but digitally instead of on film. Sure, I could do some of this in Photoshop, but I like the live, take-a-chance factor.The Lensbaby line are good products at a reasonable price. This one's a beauty.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction

Great Alternative

  • Excerpt: This optic is a great alternative to the expensive Canon Fisheye Lens. It's also small and very light which is a bonus.

Excellent macro images!

  • Excerpt: I have been putting off getting a proper fisheye or extra wide angle lens for a long time. But, when I ordered my Lensbaby I knew I had to get this too. Great decision. While this is by no means a substitute for a proper, higher end fisheye lens, it is an excellent add-on for the Lensbaby, and is more than adequate for extreme fisheye images. More importantly, it allows you to create stunning, ultra close-up macro images.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Extreme macro, Nice Bokeh

Fun lens

Abby, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this optic for use with my Lensbaby Composer, and it's probably my favorite optic. I used to have an add on fisheye for my 18-55mm kit lens, but when I upgraded cameras, I no longer had a lens I could use it with. The only drawback is that you can't zoom like you can with the add-ons, but the image is much nicer, and it's still a lot of fun to play around with.

Great addition to lensbaby kit

Carl Bergstrom, Amazon
15 February 2013
  • Summary: I was hesitant about this purchese. I didnt think that there could be much quality in this kind of lens. the photos are fairly sharp at f8+. this is the kind of "stlye" they were going for. the only issue is that the lens has to be centered. a little off and there are black around the edges (crop) on a full frame its a little circle.

Fun alternative

  • Excerpt: The Lensbaby fisheye optic offers an inexpensive alternative for those seeking an extra, extra wide option. It is super wide on a crop sensor, giving vignetting on the corners, or a circle on full-frame cameras. The optical glass is good for the price although color fringing occurs on bright days. It's certainly worth the price.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
