Reviews and Problems with Lensbaby Scout with Fisheye

Lot of fun
20 March 2013
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.
Excerpt: I recently purchased the Lensbaby Scout, Manual Focus Fisheye SLR Camera Lens for Nikon F. This little lens comes with an interchangeable fisheye lens and is making me see things very differently.
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.
Summary: I bought the Lensbaby for a bit of fun, not really sure what to expect. I have a Canon 60D, so not full frame, so I feel I should point out now that if you're not using a full frame sensor you won't get the full fisheye circle. My partner has a 5D and they get the full circle effect on theirs.
Summary: Just had a play with the scout - easy to put together, easy instructions... And if your diopter is calibrated, great shooting experience. Perfect for first time fish-eye buyers and experimental photogs.
Summary: This is a great lens for exploring extreme wide angle photography. I've used this on my EOS 7D with hardly any issues, apart from getting my feet in some of the pictures! I fitted the f8 aperture disc which gives a good depth of field, even on close ups.
