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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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: EXCELLENT PRODUCT TO USE FOR A DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW IN SHOOTING...I SHOOT WITH THE COMPOSER LENSBABY AND GOT THIS AS AN ADD ON FOR DIFFERENT EFFECT...BE WARNED THAT YOU GET ALOT OF DISTORTION ON THE EDGES OF THE PHOTOS, BUT THE PHOTOS AND COLOR THE LENS PRODUCES IS WELL WORTH LOSING SOME OF THE...
