12mm fisheye effect, small, compact, lightweight, perfect round aperture blades...


Awfull aperture system.


Nice lens but with an awfull aperture system using aperture disks. Centersharpness is fine with the traditional Lensbaby efect in borders and cornes, using smaller apertures gives sharper images increasing the size of the sharp center area.

Scout if fully compatible with Lensbaby swao system, so you can use it with other Lensbaby lenses that are compatible with the swap system like the Double Glass, Pinhole, Sweet 35mm, etc.
