12mm FE with some benifits beyond

B. W. Sharp, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Honestly, I really like the Lensbaby stuff before this purchase,so I am a bit biased and don't care. The Scout feels like a precision piece of metal in my hand and the lens moves with it flawlessly. It is easy to mount to my 7D and it takes a great picture. I played with some of the aperture disc for the FE and found that they are a bit hit and miss which to me is fun - maybe a bother to others (others who probably should have bought a traditional FE) I used it with my...

So much fun

  • Summary: I took this lens to Cambodia, along with the Rokinon 8mm Fisheye and a few other lenses. The Lensbaby Fisheye was by far the funnest lens to shoot with. In addition to getting a nice wide angle on things, it can serve as a macro lens substitute. Pictures are clear, color reproduction is great. Highly recommend for those who want to explore with their photography.

  • Excerpt: I have tried several different types of shots. So far my favorite is of my dog nose to nose with the lens...we've all seen this kind of shot, just never dreamed I'd be able to do it! Anything with straight lines in it, like trees or buildings is fun, too as it makes the lines of a picture look rounded.

  • Summary: I have been surprised by the quality it exceeds my expectations. I enjoy having a lens to be creative with when out and about. It also works very well in those low light situations.

Lot of fun

  • 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!

  • Excerpt: This lens is a lot of fun, and you can swap the other Lensbaby optics (Glass, Double Glass, Plastic, Pinhole/Lensplate, etc.) into this. I like it because it has a straight body, whereas the other lensbaby bodies are angled. It is lightweight and well-built. My only knock is that it's manual-focus only.

  • Excerpt: The lensbaby fisheye is my first manual focus lens, so it has been challenging to begin using. However, it is exactly as advertised...it is an affordable, fun, and unique lens that I am happy to have added to my collection. Further, the facts that I will be able to add other lensbaby optics, as they are interchangeable, will be fun to explore in the future.

Biggest Bang for your Buck

NathanBenjamin, Amazon
11 January 2012
  • 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!
