Lensbaby Velvet 56

Lensbaby Velvet 56: A 56mm f/1.6 Manual Focus Lens for Soft Portraits and Macro Shots

New lens announced by LensBaby.

But...if there are so many old manual focus lenses, which are WAY more cheaper, that can produce similar results, then why buy it? It seems like many old lenses can produce similar swirl, bokeh etc.
