Lensbaby Spark 50mm f/5.6 Selective Focus Lens for Canon EF Mount
The Spark 50mm f/5.6 Selective Focus Lens for Canon EF 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".
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.

Lensbaby Plastic Optic for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses
This Lensbaby Plastic Optic is part of the Lensbaby Optic Swap System. Lensbabies has developed a line of different "optics" that can be interchanged with the Muse, Composer, and Control Freak lenses. This provides artists with an almost unlimited variety of looks and styles to capture their unique visions.
The Plastic Optic provides the softest, dreamiest look in the line-up of optics. It results in photos that have a very ethereal look, with abundant chromatic aberration.
