The Spark 50mm f/5.6 Selective Focus Lens for Nikon Mount from Lensbaby is a fun and affordable introduction to the world of Lensbaby optics and will set you on your way to experimental, creative and gorgeous selective focus photography. The Spark tilting lens body and selective focus optic makes images with a rounded area of focus with one "sweet" spot of ultra sharp focus surrounded by a gradually more and more blurred out-of-focus zone. The effect of this lens creates a dreamy feel with a unique sense of beauty that allows the viewer to really embrace the in-focus aspect of the photo, whether it be a person's eyes or hands or a flower's petal, and then to sense the gorgeously out-of-focus or dynamically motion-blurred background.  

The lens body is all-plastic making it very light but the lens itself is a multi-coated glass doublet: two coated lenses combined to reduce reflections and offer sharp focus. The aperture is fixed at f/5.6 and the prime focal length is 50mm, a great length for portraits and general photography. The lens is manual focusing only, which is actually ideal given that you should select your point of focus with precision, and the minimum focusing distance is 13" (33 cm).

Compatible with all Lensbaby 37mm threaded accessory lenses and with the Lensbaby Optic Swap System, the Spark is a great way to start your foray into the creativity afforded by Lensbaby lenses and accessories.

Sweet Spot Selective Focus
The Spark 50mm lens precisely focuses on one point within the frame creating a sweet spot of focus surrounded by gradual blur.
Multi-Coating
The Spark's two optical elements are multi-coated to allow increased light transmission, contrast and reduce ghosting.
Focus Distance
The Spark can focus from a minimum of 13" (33 cm) to infinity. It is a 50mm lens with a fixed f/5.6 aperture.
Compatibility
This Nikon mount lens is compatible with all Lensbaby 37mm threaded accessory lenses and the Lensbaby Optic Swap System of interchangeable creative effect optics.
Manual Focus Lens
Spark lens focuses manually with a turn of the soft plastic body.

    I use this lens to give a new interesting prespective in portrait shoots and with great practice and handling you can use it to give a creative new prespective look to all your shots. -I love how involed and how you would have to get out of you comfort zone to capture a great shot by get up close and known you're shooting you subject if you are shooting street photography!-The cheapest lensbabies a available just under $ so if you want the extraens to give you alot of interesting new look and not having to leave a hole in your wallet!!!!-Cons i'd say is you can do these effects on photo editing softwares.

      It provides really nice effects, at the fraction of the cost they should have in more "serious" pieces of equipment. It's not so easy to get used to it, and produce consistent results, but it sure is alot of fun!

      Comments about Lensbaby Spark 50mm f/5.6 Selective Focus Lens for Nikon Mount:

      This lens has to be seen as a creative tool, this is really what it is. Very cheap, it is relatively easy to use, although the non permanent nature of the its settings makes it tricky to manipulate sometimes. But after all, this is what makes it creative! I really recommend to have this tool in your bag.

                  It's a fun and lens, but no the easiest one to use. Best to slap it on a camera that can save non-cpu lens parameters, like I did with my D300

                        You have to hold the focus and position with your hand. It would be worth the extra money to get the composer.
