    I never understood the reasoning behind getting a Lensbaby. Can't all of those effects be done in Photoshop?

    This is true, but it just isn't the same.

    It is so much fun. And yeah, you could do most of those effects in PS. But part of the fun of the lensbaby is that you don't really know how it is going to come out (if you have the low end one that is).

    It is cheap as lenses go. If you are in the market for one I think it is damn fun.

    I thought exactly the same, the first time I saw Lensbaby, a couple of years ago.

    I forgot to mention that my reasoning behind getting one was because I REALLY liked the lomo effects...but I am unable to work with film.

    The final kick in the nuts is when they released adapters for the Diana lens for the Nikon/Canon crowd but not the Sony icon_sad.gif
