Product Description

Style: Canon EF Mount

From the Manufacturer

The Lensbaby 2.0 is a second-generation selective-focus SLR camera lens, bringing brighter, sharper, and faster selective focus photography to professional and avid amateur photographers. Compared to the Original Lensbaby, Lensbaby 2.0 has a greater range of aperture settings, a much sharper "sweet spot" of focus, and a new levitating magnetic aperture system that makes it a snap to change apertures.

(Click for larger views.)
Lensbaby 2.0 and the Original Lensbaby bring one area of a photo into sharp focus, with that "sweet spot" surrounded by graduated blur, glowing highlights, and subtle prismatic color distortions. Photographers can fluidly move the sharp area around the photo by bending the flexible lens tubing.

Lensbaby 2.0 features an f2.0 aperture setting in addition to the Original Lensbaby's f2.8, f4.0, f5.6, and f8.0. With Lensbaby 2.0, a photographer can control the size of the sweet spot of sharp focus by changing the apertures. The brighter the aperture, the smaller the sweet spot of focus, and the greater the amount of graduated blurring in the photo's surrounding area.

Lensbaby 2.0 also features a coated, high-refractive-index, low-dispersion optical glass doublet instead of the singled uncoated optical glass element in the Original Lensbaby. Lensbaby 2.0's optic creates a much sweeter sweet spot of focus, which allows photographers to print large photos and see fine details like eyelashes or individual threads of fabric in the sharp area. Photographers will also find that Lensbaby 2.0 has minimal diffusion even at the f2.0 aperture setting.

Lensbaby now has two products that will appeal to a broader range of photographers. Many photographers will want to have both versions of Lensbaby in their camera bags; others will naturally find a favorite. Those who love soft-focus, diffused images will gravitate towards the Original Lensbaby, while photographers who want a brighter lens with a very sharp sweet spot of focus and minimal diffusion will favor Lensbaby 2.0.

Lensbaby 2.0 also features a levitating magnetic aperture system that makes changing apertures faster than with the Original Lensbaby, which uses a rubber gasket to hold aperture disks in place. Lensbaby 2.0 uses three shielded magnets embedded inside the optics cup to suspend metallicized plastic aperture disks just above the coated optical glass doublet. When a photographer drops an aperture disk into Lensbaby 2.0, it quickly snaps into position.

Removal is also very easy: Lensbaby provides a complimentary Cell-Klear Lenspen that the photographer inserts through the center hole in the aperture disk to lift it out.

Both Lensbaby 2.0 and the Original Lensbaby combine several vintage camera technologies in a novel, patent-pending combination. The shooter focuses a Lensbaby using the same general principle used with a bellows camera, by moving the focusing collar in and out with his or her fingertips. The photographer moves the sweet spot of focus around the picture by bending the glass optic out of a parallel position to the image capture plane, like a tilt-shift lens.

The Lensbaby 2.0 Canon EF Mount fits all Canon digital and film EOS SLR bodies, as well as the Kodak DCS-1, DCS 520, DCS 560, and DSC PRO SLR/c. (Note: A Lensbaby does not communicate electronically with your camera body.)

What's in the Box:
Lensbaby 2.0, velveteen lens pouch, four aperture rings, aperture removal tool, and instructional booklet.

The bokeh can be funky, but usually it's just a buttery soft blur.

I had heard about the Lensbaby for some time, but hadn't had the chance to try it out.

I was really surprised at how sharp and good the photos turned out.

This is great for those people who miss the selective focus aspects of the 4x5, but compact and easy enough to use on your digital or 35mm. I think the price is a little high for what you get, but that's not too uncommon these days.... I am a professional wedding/portrait photographer, and I do landscapes and wildlife on my own, andit adds a nice 'something different' to my work. I would recommend it!

This lens looked to be way too much fun for $150, so I took a chance and bought one and am happy I did. It does take some practice to get the focusing down but it is fun to learn and experiment with. I have mostly L lenses and was suprised by the photo quality this lens produces. It is not in the same league as an L lens but still produces nice images. The f/stop inserts are easy to use but I did have to find a place in my camera bag to keep them. You really need to have control of your settings to get the exposure correct, but I am having lots of fun with it. The quality and having to keep up with a seperate bag of inserts is why I rate this at 4 stars but for fun it is definitely a 5.

I'm a huge fan of tilt shift photography and this makes it so easy- good for newbies and pros alike. I bought it to use with my Olympus e-500 and it works great! Takes a little getting used to- but once you get a hang of it - it's a lot of fun to use! I've been comparing photos I've taken with it to ones I took with a regular SLR (same shots)- and the lensbaby certainly makes an ordinary photo more interesting. It's light and fits nicely in my camera bag. Comes with a little fabric bag to store it in. Instructions are easy- but just to note- in English only. If you really want to have more fun with your photo taking- This is a great way to do it. I wish it came with a sun filter to protect the lens. Not sure if they make one for it or not.

I got this for my Canon Rebel XS DLSR. I had heard about the Lensbaby for some time, but hadn't had the chance to try it out. Since there are newer Lensbabies out, the Lensbaby 2.0 has gone WAY down in price. I got mine for $69 here at Amazon and at that price you can't go wrong at all. It the same glass doublet as the $150 MUSE. I must say that even at $150, the Lensbaby is still well worth the price. At $69, it's a no brainer.

This is a "creative" lens. It will not replace your regular lens as that is not it's purpose. It's a fun and curious. I like it because it makes normal shots turn into something spectacular. It's not as sharp as my other lens (not even the kit lens) and I don't use it all the time because it's not the type of thing you really want to overuse. I do always carry it with me whenever I go out to shot, and I usually change to the Lensbaby at some point to shoot a few interesting photos.

About ease of use: At first, ALL of my shots were blurry and messed up. It takes a while to actually get used to this lens. After some practice, some good shots began to come out. I still take a few extra shots while moving the Lensbaby just to make sure that I have choices. After getting used to it, it becomes a very easy and intuitive process. I like it a lot. Focusing by squeezing and pushing is an imperfect process, but I guess a lot of Lensbaby users don't mind having a little randomness in their shots.

I was very curious about the Composer, not only for the focusing mechanism, but also for the interchangeable optic system (easier to use and more consistent, plus changing optics gives more choices). For the extra $200, it just wasn't an option for me at the time, especially for something I wasn't sure I was going to like.

It's only been a short while since I bought the lens baby so I've not really mastered the technique yet. I have been surprised by how much you need to practice (but maybe that's just me). Getting your subject in focus is tricky and getting the 'sweet spot' when you bend the lens is even more difficult. But I'm pleased with the couple of decent pictures I've managed to snap. It'll just take time and there are some decent web-sites out there to help out with tips and techniques.

Style Name: Canon EF Mount
This lens is a steal at [...]!! Many people paid over [...] for one of these. I got a nice used one for [...] on ebay. My first day of playing with this thing was like learning to take pictures all over again.

First, you have to learn how to hold your camera differently. I don't do it like they show on their website. I hold my camera with my right hand in the normal position, using my left hand to bend and squish the lensbaby with two or three fingers This may seem like an awful hardship at first. Suck it up! No whining! Your fingers will get sore and your hands will shake! You will have so much fun bending the lens around, gently stretching it out when you get too close, and generally taking pointlessly beautiful artistic shots, that you won't care!

The second time you use the lens, you will probably have some grand artistic vision of exactly what you want your photo to look like. You may be disappointed. This lens is all about experimentation and spontaneity. If you want to get all precise, get the Composer. Your achy fingers will thank you for spending [...]. The control-freak looks like a royal pain.

The downside is this: You're probably going to love this thing so much you'll wish you could do more with it. You can get a few accessories for this lens, and that will keep you entertained for a little while, you will be upset about the prices though. The accessories all work with the newer model lensbabies, so they're not as value-priced as this lens. So if you're enticed by the whole concept, and excited by this review, seriously consider buying one of their new models. You might never regret purchasing this lens, and if you have a kid or a photo-buddy you'll loan them this lens when you get a newer one just to watch somebody else get hooked!
