That's right...a whole big month of Lensbaby! I know some of you got the LB on your Xmas wish list, and others of us are already, quite frankly, addicted to the LB's sweet delicious blurriness. Those who loath the blur and distortion...please move along. Only LB love will be spread here. Don't have a LB but want one? Now you have and excuse to go get one...you've got nearly 3 weeks to gear up.

Only rule here will be that your shot must be made with a LB...that's it. You don't have to post everyday, or comment on everything...let's keep it fun.

Shall we?

Not yet in my kit bag, but hoping it will be in the next few days.... So, count me in, weather depending.

Ummm.... OK, I see they have the Canon version in stock at B&H. I think I shall order it.... :-) If it gets here, I'll play!

I've had a lensbaby for a long time now .. maybe this is the opportunity for me to get it out of my bag and actually use it!

I'd like to join in. I haven't done a side challenge before, but would like to participate more on the site...
12/11/2008 02:21:10 PM · #7
May I play too? :)

I'd like to join in too. Things are starting to calm down and it'll help motivate me to pick up the camera more again!

You're welcome! So glad you've enjoyed them.

Also happy to see so much interest early on!
12/11/2008 03:44:36 PM · #11
Oh NO YOU DIDN'T!

I've been avoiding getting one of these because it would be a total luxury, and now you've done this (just when my family is scratching around for something to buy me...)

Oh crap - what to do? The $AUS dollar is in the toilet ... Agggghhhh!

Count me in on this one. I've had my LB lens for about 6 months now, and have never used it. So this will allow me to play with it.

Yup, those are fabulous too!

Just got the confirmation, my Lensbaby Composer for Nikon should be here late next week :-)

Unfortunately I'm out - just checked the currency conversion - and with shipping right now with our dollar under water I'll have to pass. But I'll watch with enthusiasm!

...and Lisa...consider a gently used LB too. There are tons of people who get them, then soon after decide they want nothing to do with them. Heck, there are probably a ton of people here looking to unload LBs.

Excellent advice. You may even want to post a "Wanted to Buy" thread to see if anyone is in the market to part with one. I think it would suit your photography VERY well.
