I had one for about a day before I put it up for sale on ebay. Was not my cup of tea. I tried for about 2 hours to get a usable pic with no luck.

My advice is to stay away. To hard to used and my photoshop can do everything they say it can do.

On a side note I got more for it on ebay then I paid.

I have one. I love it. It takes a little practice, but some shots can be made that are really cool. Here are a few of mine:
' . substr('//mishuna.image.pbase.com/v3/31/387431/3/49612400.IMG_5991.jpg', strrpos('//mishuna.image.pbase.com/v3/31/387431/3/49612400.IMG_5991.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//www.', strrpos('//www.', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//mishilo.image.pbase.com/v3/31/387431/3/49565221.IMG_5978.jpg', strrpos('//mishilo.image.pbase.com/v3/31/387431/3/49565221.IMG_5978.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

' . substr('//i.pbase.com/v3/31/387431/3/49622718.IMG_6940.jpg', strrpos('//i.pbase.com/v3/31/387431/3/49622718.IMG_6940.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I have one, for a couple of months now. I don't really get it out of my bag very often; I don't seem to get one point in focus, and that really bothers me.

I bought a LenBaby 2.0 for Chiqui74 last month, and it's a fun lens to use! I'd definitely recommend them to anyone who doesn't mind not having all of their shot in perfect focus ;o)

i'm naturally drawn towards it as i tend to take strangely focused pictures of strange objects even with a normal lens. it definately is not a tool for precision work...you need a a tilt-shift or a bellows lens for that.

Here's a challenge entry that did well.

I really like the Lensbaby 2.0. I really haven't had time to use it like I want to but I do like it so far. I'd definitely recommend it, as a matter of fact I can't wait to shoot some portraits with it.

Example 1

Example 2

There's a new macro attachment that you can add onto the lens baby to get closer.

I got one a few weeks ago but haven't had much free time to play with it. Hope to get shots from it soon!

Didn't you say you "failed" at photography and are selling all of your stuff? No offense, but I find it hard to take advice like this from someone who admitted he was giving up and going home.

Not sure if this post was before the selling thread.

I've really enjoyed my Lensbaby. More than anything else, it gives me another way of looking at things:

And for those that say they can get the same effect in Photoshop, I'd double check that. I've seen pictures that were very close, but they've been missing the distortion.
