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: No so easy to learn to take shots with it, but it is also a funny process learning to use. When using it calls attention for its different shape and once you get used with it you can take interesting shots (i did not yet).
Summary: Lensbaby Spark Lens for Canon is great for outdoor portraits, it creates a focal point in the pictures and rich colors. The lens is not good for low light conditions since the aperture is fixed at f/5.6. This lens gives you the sensation that you are responsible for the outcome since you have to do all manually and controll the focus point.
Summary: I first bought this just to try it out, but ended up keeping it because it allows me to be so much more creative at a very low cost. I would recommend anyone to try this out, it will help you hone your manual focus skills.
Summary: I'm afraid I can't write a very good review on the lens itself as I haven't really used it yet. Everything else was excellent. It was well packaged. Just as it was advertised . Not one problem on that end. It's all on my side. I need to get my act together and work with it. I justify that it's winter here and below 0 and spring is coming. It was a good price.
Summary: Years ago I used an older version of the lensbaby. It was cool, but not exactly easy to use. This one is a lot more ergonomic, and easy enough to hold the camera with one hand, and focus the lens with the other. It takes a little getting used to, but it's not a steep learning curve. I think it's a pretty decent value for the price. I use a Canon EOS 7D, and shoot manual exposure.
