Yes I do. I did a whole month shooting with mine in March. You can see my images on my flickr site.

It's a hard thing to get right but if you work at it, it can provide some fun images. Mine is the the older 3 version. The new ones are a bit more versatile and of course have more gadgets and cost more. If I had to get one today, I would and would get the simplest one. Unless you like this sort of thing, this will be something you use from time to time.

I have one at home at the time, but it is just a pain in the ass. To much work to get something good and if you don't put in the labour then you end up with nothing worthwile to keep.

You might want to take a look at this thread. I and a few others post thoughts and example photos.

To sum up, I've got a LensBaby Composer and like it but it is very challenging. I would like to get one of the new Super 35 lenses for it, that give it a much more usable focal length on crop-sensor cameras.
