Has anyone used a Lensbaby? I love the bokeh/ Holga style image it produces and I'm thinking of getting one when I get my K10 (and the macro kit for it). All the review suggest it's worth it and a lot of fun! Please post some pictures if you have one. Thanks!

I have a lensbaby 2, and at least for what I do, I'd STRONGLY recommend the extra cash for the lendbaby 3 so you can actualy focus on something semi-repeatably.

I have yet to produce any images I like with it, and it largely comes down to being able to maintain focus on something while actuating the shutter. The lensbaby 3 would make that a non-issue.

I just picked up a lensbaby 2 on ebay. I haven't really shot much with it yet but I have a couple events this weekend so I'll probably bring it along.

Remember its not really going to be a sharp lens at any aperture. Its more of a mood thing.

Here's a review of the 3G on a K10D:

I've had a Lensbaby 2.0 for about 8 months now, it's a lot of fun for certain occasions. I like using it for portrait style, candid and even sceneic stuff for a different perspective.

Here's my flickr Lensbaby Set
