      This is a great little kit for getting creative shots without having to be a pro with your photo editing software. Strangely, though, the storage bag does not accommodate everything in the kit.

      Comments about Lensbaby Creative Effects System Kit (Canon EF Mount):

      If you're just looking of a variety of lens in a set and expect absolutely true to life perfect optics - move on, this is NOT for you. However, if you're a creative photographer looking to explore options and expand your ability to manipulate your images in-camera then this is an awesome starting point!While the components seem 'cheap' or minimal don't underestimate your ability to make inspiring photogrpahs by varying the options and some trial and error. Much better than trying to Photoshop special effects - Do it in-camera!

            Comments about Lensbaby Creative Effects System Kit (Canon EF Mount):

            I have been using Photoshop since 1998, and I can do some brilliant image manipulation. But nothing compares to having a macro lens, 50mm prime or some other inspiring lens to add to your already existing creativity. This kit is just that, and much more. The kit offers you a number of options from macro rings to tele-converters that can change the field of view. I must say I am fond of the double glass optic as its sharp as a tac and fun to play with. I also already ordered the fisheye lens (150$!) but am awaiting it for testing. I have wanted a lensbaby since version 1, and waiting until the composer pro I am not disappointed the build quality is amazing the optics are fun and all around I am happy.

            Comments about Lensbaby Creative Effects System Kit (Canon EF Mount):

            This kit, comes with one of the lenses, but different types of optics and accessories, so you can, change and make different combinations. Your pictures will never look the same. It works well with my cannon camera. You can play around with focus, depth of field, I really recommend it. And it's cheaper to buy the whole kit, its useful and you can get different types of lenses in one bag, and the bag itself its really great and cute.
