Lens baby is a very unique lens and operates very differently from a traditional lens. I have found that many newer shooters that buy a Lens Baby find that its just taking up space in the camera bag. For someone that truly understand the concept of the lens baby and can put it to work the system creates awesome images. It allows you to control the sweet spot of focus and manipulate it to virtually anywhere in the frame and gives more control over the depth of field. Are you looking for a lens to pop on and shoot or are you looking for something that adds another creative dimension to your work?
Just something new to learn and play with. The price is right is why I am looking at it. i think I could have fun with it. It focuses differnetly then a regular lens. Like the old camera's? correct.
