Thankfully Lensbaby have made the lettering embossed in silver and therefore much easier to read than their other optics of the same design.
This is a flat field optic and therefore is meant to be used without tilting, if you like the Lensbaby system and notably the creative aperture look, you will probably like this, the additional multi holed soft focus aperture disks create interesting background specular highlights.
If you are specifically looking for a soft focus look, this is an option worth considering and about a tenth of the price of the premium Velvet 56 and in some situations can produce a similar look, additionally you can have full use of the creative aperture kit with this optic if you have it.
Finally, this produces a soft to very soft look which is a bit of an acquired taste, if you like that, you will probably love this optic.
