Owner reviews: Lensbaby Twist 60
Very cool Petzval effect in the bokeh. Center is fairly sharp wide open. Stopped down to f/4 or higher, center to mid-frame sharpness is very good. At minimum aperture, it's usable as a standard lens. It's posslbe to set the aperture in between the full click settings. Cheaper than a Petzval reproduction.
It's somewhat expensive. It's basically a one-trick pony, although it can be used as a more traditional lens if stopped down very far.
I use this optic with a Lensbaby Scout base. I would highly recommend buying any/all Lensbaby products used rather than new. At used prices, they are far more of a good value.
