It can be done somewhat by zooming while the shutter is opened. If ya have the money or really want to try it sure, but I don't see much point in them. The shots I like on here are definitely selective as well.

someone said it is more of a toy... True, but toys are fun and I think it would be cool to try one of these lensbabies:) They make a dreamy effect. Do you put them on instead of or over your lens?

It's simply put on the camera, just like any other lens...

I used to see a bunch of wedding photographers use them in their arsenal. I have a 2.0 and I'll add some pictures tomorrow when I have my day off.

Ow my head, these things give me a headache. Interesting effect though -- I love how you can customize the optics on the new composer, from cheapo plastic (for all you CA lovers out there) to double coated glass. Props to Lensbaby for creating such a cool system.

It gives me a headache too! :( It's much better when it's not used wide open.

F8 with the tele filter. Not too bad for sharpness but nothing to write home about either.

I love my lensbaby! It is by far my favorite lens. I have have the 3G and use the 4.0 aperture disk most of the time.

Yes, it can be over used, but when used in the right setting it can create lovely images.

Of course that is just my opinion, such as it is :D
