Can anyone post some sample images? What I have seen of this product there isn't anything it does that can't be done with a little Photoshop skill. Not knocking it, would just like to see what a person does with it.
Most people try to get sharper images of the camera and add burr and motion effects in PP as needed. Just wonder when it comes in handy to do the reverse.

ok while i had my lensbaby composer the lens was an awesome fun thing to shoot with!
i had it attached to my rebel XT and took that combo everywhere! i was shooting anything and looking for ideas on what to shoot! the images come as good as you make them to be.
unfortunately i sold it to finance my 5d but when i have the money again i will definitely buy one along with an XT to have as a "fun setup"


ohh and one last thing! if you are using it it a camera with a poor viewfinder camera like the XT or if you have poor eyesight i recommend using it at F4 you have wider margin for focus

I have an XS, I'm guessing it's no better than an XT's viewfinder? What makes a viewfinder "poor", BTW?

The whole Lensbaby vs photoshop thing has come up before, several threads on that one. The general conclusion is if you are after the lensbaby style blur then the lens is the way to go. Its a whole lot quicker and better than using photoshop. The flip side of course being photoshop offers you a wider range of custom effects.
