Thank you Ray!
That is what I see that it is not walk around lens though not sure how to use and setup with screw-in diopter, do you have some reference image or some where you read about how to?

Search on Flikr for ĎLensbabyí if you want to see results before you buy. You can use it hand-held by wrapping your fingers around the camera and tilting the lens for the best shot, but sometimes itís easier on a tripod. The diopters I used were made by Polaroid and came in a pouch of six, they screwed on the front of the lens and got you a lot closer. The IQ of the Spark is not good but itís fun to use occasionally.

I'm a bit out of touch with Lensbaby lenses (as I am with all new lenses) but isn't the Spark an entry into the Lensbaby system? It will take all their drop in lenses (I got a kit with my Composer years ago). The Spark is definately hands on, in fact you need both hands on it when shooting ;)

Thank you Tate! I see the use only for standing situation likes person or garden or flower or something that is still but yes I see it cannot be use for moving or speed or windy situation.

The top product reviews give some pretty good feedback. Sounds like you need to move/hold the lens in place while shooting. That could get annoying. Personally, I can't imagine many situations where I'd use something like that.

Is this a good deal? Should I invest in this? I do not see many photographs using this so cannot be sure.
