Excerpt: Solid build, outstanding macro capabilities. The focus confirm feature still works with manual focus on my A99 and is very accurate. Have not tried the aperture disks yet, still pleased with the sharpness wide open at f4. The A99 allows you to crop in on the FF sensor so I get the best of both worlds with this combo. I am impressed with the Lensbaby product and will purchase the composer pro/edge 80 combo if they offer the combo discount for the Sony mount.
Summary: This lens is a lot of fun for hundreds of dollars less than nikons fisheye. Fairly well made and should do the job considering I will probably only use this lens 10% of the time why spend $1000 for super wide and distorted shots. Did I mention not only was the price great but I got free shipping!
Summary: I shoot with a a Sony A65 and shopped around for a Fish-eye Lens. I was debating on dropping the $850.00 on a Sony lens or the $650.00 on a sigma but am happy i didn't at this point in my photography career. I dropped the 250.00 and went with lens baby and couldn't be more satisfied with the fish-eye lens. It is very fishy! although it is manual focus, which i actually prefer, it is one hell of a deal if you are going for the fish-eye look for cheap!
Summary: This is a great addition to the LensBaby line, and allows you to get creative in a lot of new ways. The product is made up of two distinct parts, the Scout Lens Assembly, and the Fisheye optic. The Scout lens assembly works with all your LensBaby optics, focuses smoothly and is well built and solid. Unlike the Composer or Muse, this unit does not bend, flex, or twist. When you use optics with a sweet spot of focus, that sweet spot will always be perfectly centered.
Summary: What a great value for the money. A Fish Eye and a Macro wrapped into one. This lens has a bit of a learning curve - it takes some experimentation to get the exposure correct. The photos are sharp and I cannot believe how close you can get to your subject. And the Fish Eye effect - what fun!
Summary: This is a good lens for a very reasonable price. I was looking for a fisheye for an effect lens, not an every day shooting experience. I am pleased with the decision, and it was well worth the price paid. Since the lens is strictly manual focus I may upgrade my camera's focusing screen to help with the up-close shots.
