    Another "toy lens" from Lensbaby.

    It is available in MFT mount, Aperture is constant 3.5, 3 different lens on a turret - sweet, twist and velvet.

    Here is my copy on my E-PM2


    So far, only images from the twist lens (vintage Petzval design with swirly bokeh):

    I had a Lensbaby years ago and wanted to love it, but I just didn't. Traded it back in. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your shots with this. I like the swirly bokeh on these.

    The next set of images were taken with the "velvet" lens. This is what I believe was called in the past "soft focus" and provides a bit of a glow around subjects. Not useful for all images, but there are some places where it really works imho.

    Finally, some images with the "sweet" lens. This is like the classic lensbaby composer lens with the double glass or sweet optics, but without the ability to bend the lens. I like it for landscape stuff.



    Given the 3 days experience - I am probably going to use the Twist mostly for portrait like photos, the Sweet mostly for landscape and the Velvet for atmospheric images.
