4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but not "perfect every time", 22 Jun. 2013
By 
This review is from: Lensbaby 50 mm Spark Selective Focus Lens for Canon (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This lens is FUN! You will not get perfect results every time, half of the shots that I get from it are not in focus at all. But that's OK, it's a fun lens to use, it has a unique look to it, and it is unique. The lensbaby website contains some excellent videos and articles to teach you how to use it. You will need to be taught how to use the lens, it doesn't work like a "normal" lens. Plenty of practice will be needed just to be able to focus with it.

Certainly not an indoors lens, I found that it needed to be used outdoors. This lens requires a lot of light before sensible shutter speeds become usable. Set your expectations to "lomo" as well! Certainly not a lens I would use every day, but it is small and light enough to throw in a camera bag for occasional use. It's a lot cheaper than most other lenses, so if you like the look of the images it produces, it's something that you could buy and not regret the cost of.

Mine came with plastic caps for each end of the lens, a cloth bag and a card box, just the right amount of packaging. The included sample photographs look great cropped to a square format.

If you're looking for something a little more serious, but still with a lensbaby look, the "Edge 80" optic with the "Composer" might be more to your tastes, but if you're just after something cheap and fun, this lens might be just what you're looking for.
