I have a Velvet 56, just got a Sol 45 for xmas, have ordered the Macro Ring set yesterday and now could not resist this offer so have ended up on backorder for the Sweet 80. Absolute bargain, I really love these range of lenses.

I considered buying ones for my Fuji X and M4/3 bodies too. While Adorama does sell these Lensbabys in a wide variety of mounts, only the Pentax mount is available at these fabulous prices.

The 50 and the 80. At that price there was nothing to lose

They are also on backorder, but I'm a patient man....

Looks like the 50mm has jumped back up, but the other two are still $100!

I just spent some time reviewing Lensbaby photos over on Flickr in the Lensbaby group.

I've owned 3 different Lensbaby models. Unlike other lenses which I find fairly consistent in their rendering, Lensbaby images can vary widely. When they're good they're really good, but when they're bad they'll give you a headache.

To make a good Lensbaby image, it not only takes practice/technique, but also the right type of subject and background. If you're new to Lensbaby's, you might want to click here to see thousands of Lensbaby photos (good and bad) to give you a feel for how you might want to use your new lens. Have fun!

I'm back ordered, but it's still saying I paid $100, but they'll only take payment once it ships, hopefully I'm still good (and am happy to wait, still getting to grips with the Sol 45).

I'm also in it for the Sweet 35, but the optic alone is $179.
The current $100 deal for the Sweet 35 is only available with the NX mount Composer Pro II.
Does anyone know if I can take the optic out of the NX mount Composer and fit it on the Pentax K mount Composer?

I bought 80 and got the confirmation email.
when I logged back in to check for the status, since I saw some said backordered, I found they canceled my order without any notification!
Good job Adorama!

And I have bought a sweet 35 optical part from ebay already!

That's harsh.
Perhaps email them and find out why.

Now I'm too scared to check my account status lol, I'm just leaving it at an email with $100 for the Sweet 80 and a back ordered status...

Thank you for the advice. But I will not bother and will not buy from them anymore -- they didn't even bother sending an email to tell me the order was canceled, let along a "sorry". What shall I expect?
Last time I bought a Rokinon 50 1.2 NEX mount from them, and got a EOS-M mount lens in the NEX box! it means they opened the boxes and misplaced the lenses, and still sold them as new!
Luckily the ebay seller was nice, canceled my 35 optic order.
