Summary: Very inexpensive way to get into tilt shift photography with out committing to a high dollar lens. While inexpensive, and a lot of plastic, it actually feels quite robust and sturdy. The optics are a little slow, aperture wise, but as an entry level tool, its a great bargain.
Summary: Great tool to have, not really going for the tilt shift style, but does wonders for getting those shots of action, or stand alone actions. Must practice with to get the right comps, and have decent eye sight. Just the all around wonderful tool to use. Have a hard time putting it down and going back to my other lenses.
Summary: Its good for play, is not easy focus at the begining, but after that you only enjoy. I like street photography and it add a special look for my pictures. If you are a photographer who looks for the perfection its not for you. Is a toy very cheap.

Summary: While the spark is the cheapest in the lensbaby lineup it makes the most sense as a starting point. The spark is a unique all manual lens. the selective area of focus is amazing. I've gotten everything from shallow depths of field to creative partial focus with this lensbaby.While using it for portraits, landscape and as a walk around. My wife and I fight over who gets to use it when we go out for shoots.
