Comments about Lensbaby Pro Effects Kit for Canon EF:

This is a very useful kit if you want to experiment with tilt/shift photography. I Purchased the sweet 50 lens as well to round out the kit. The lenses work great if you are willing to spend the time playing with them and the kit is much cheaper than purchasing seperate tilt/shift lenses from other manufturers. The down side is that these are one or 2 element lenses and not 11 element lenses like competitors sell. I'm happy with my purchase. The kit is relatively well made and images are clear. Have fun with it.

    Excited to receive the Pro Effects Kit for Canon EF by Lensbaby. All pieces seem to be made very well. Instructional videos are well done and super helpful. It does take a bit of time to get use to how the Lensbaby lenses function, but they are a welcome addition to my equipment and work. As always, B&H provides excellent customer service!!!

      Just getting started with Lensbaby but right out of the box, seems well constructed. I can see right off this will take some practice but the possibiities evident from just a couple of brief sessions are very interesting.

      Take your creativity to the next level

      By A. Príncipe

      from San Juan, PR

      Pros

      • Creative Edge

      Cons

      • Manual Focus
      • Requers Practice

      Best Uses

      • Landscape/Scenery
      • Macro Photography
      • Outdoors
      • Portrairs
      • Wildlife Photos

      Comments about Lensbaby Pro Effects Kit for Canon EF:

      These lenses take time to master, but once you get the hang of it, the possibilities are endless. The blur effect is very appealing and sometimes even mistifying, the macro kit is great, and when combining the Composer with the Edge 80 you can get a "miniature effect", which is an excellent alternative to experiment with this awesome effect if you can't afford a tilt/shift lens.

      Kit is convenient but not a great value.

      By Chrisizzle

      Pros

      • Convenience in buying kit
      • Lightweight

      Cons

      • Tough To Attach
      • Value

      Best Uses

      • Landscape/Scenery
      • Sports/Action

      Comments about Lensbaby Pro Effects Kit for Canon EF:

      I ordered the kit because I was in a hurry and just wanted to have everything I needed. Afterwards, I was told by a sales person (not at B&H) it is actually cheaper to buy the individual components of the kit separately. I suppose you pay a little extra for the bag... which I don't use anyway. Also, the lens cloth looks large in the product photo. In reality, it is almost a postage stamp. I was going to call the manufacturer to complain but, I have no shortage of free lens cloths from other vendors.In short though... the Lensbaby does what it is supposed to. Good product overall.
