If you want your $3000+ DSLR to take photos that look like a 2007 cell phone took it... then...

  • Summary: I'm not sure what the infatuation with these "lenses" are... but it works well and as advertised. I think there are some very rare instances where you want to blur the sides or foreground so much that you can't recognize it... maybe this is a good use of it..

A pain to use despite the low price.

Gadget Guru, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this product because there is absolutely no way I can afford a real tilt/shift lens, especially for the little amount I would actually use it. Let's face it, it's not something I plan to do a lot.

Eh

Amanda B., Amazon

  • Summary: It's tough to focus if you wear glasses, but fun to play with. Honestly though, while I didn't have high expectations, I'm not super pleased with the quality. My lens appears to focus to the left of center instead of center focus.

Great first LensBaby

Spank!, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I give it three stars. Reason the build quality is ehhhh, very plasticky and the lens bellows are thin. But it does exactly what it's advertised to do. Would try not to over use it on shoots the effect is the same pretty much every photo.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Trendy
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Weak Casing

Unpredictable

CJ, Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: Not much control over the lens at all. I'm a photographer and even though I can control all the camera settings, it never really focuses right. I wonder if the more expensive versions are better? Photos with this are so hit or miss. Really only for playing around. Could never use for a client.

Fun but challenging

Jenni O, Adorama
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Its so cheap, I just got it for fun. I have been free lensing and finally got the hang of that when I decided to try this. I have a very hard time nailing the focus in camera. But this could just be me. I really do like this lens and I have only used it a select number of times.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light, Tough To Attach, Weak Casing

Not bad

  • Summary: The single aperture f/5.6 is a bit limiting though - personally would have preferred something around f/2.8. It is a fun piece of kit despite this though.
