An ideal entry point into Lensbaby's special effects lens system, the Spark Duo, available here for Nikon F mount cameras, will give anyone the ability to quickly and easily generate fun and unique looking images for a boost in creativity.

  • Spark 50mm f/5.6 Selective Focus Lens for Nikon F Mount

    The Spark 50mm f/5.6 Selective Focus Lens for Nikon F 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.

    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" 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.

  • 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.

Lensbaby LBSPBN reviews

Spark Duo for Nikon F is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and full of possibilities I normally photograph birds with a long, sharp lens so this was truly just for fun. I went right for the Plastic Lens and took it along when I went to photograph birds and am having a great time making unusual landscape and close-up shots. Even a few birds!! It has given me a shot in the creative arm and I like the challenge of manually finding the focus. It is a bit awkward to adjust manually and I find myself smashing the camera against my nose but I am getting accustomed to that. For the price, it is great and I will probably be back for more lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of fun... This lens is a lot of fun. This is my first Lensbaby lens, and am just learning how to use it to get different effects that this particular model is capable of. One of my favorite things to photograph are flowers with the great bokeh this lens is capable of. There is a learning curve, but it sure is fun going through the learning process, experimenting. Now I'm thinking about getting another Lensbaby...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this set and B&H This was a great introduction to tilt shift photography! Easy to use and understand. I wasn't ready to jump in and get an expensive lens until I decided if this was for me. There is a definite learning curve to using it, so have patience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still experimenting I'm still experimenting with the Spark and having fun with it. What I have discovered is that I can use a Kenko extension tube with it and create some nice soft images with the plastic optic.
