Owner reviews: Lensbaby Double Glass Optic
Creativity, tilt function and the lensbaby blur effect.
Nice f/2 aperture.
Very difficult to use, difficult to focus manually, you need to experiment a lot.
Weird aperture system using small disks.
Missing lens hood, you need to buy it appart.
This lens is made as a toy, it isn't sharp anyway. The aperture system is crap.
Focusing using Lensbabay composer is unaccurate, and there is no focus confirmation available, in my case using a high precise focusing screen helped a lot on mi 5D, but using the standard focus screen is dissapointing.
Regarding the tilt efect, as the lens isn't sharp you will not see the tilt effect as most of the frame will by blurred out. The tilt effect lets you move the sharp focus area all around the frame.
Anyway, the lensbaby effect is very cool, so the fun is to play waltking around and see what happens...
