The Sweet 35 Optic, a 35mm selective focus optic with a 12-blade internal aperture, boasts the widest focal length of any selective focus Lensbaby optic and features close-focus capabilities.

400 for something you can do in Photoshop. I wish I had more money than sense.

Lensbaby started off as cheap fun optics but the price is not really doing it for me anymore.

Don't let the Woolybills hear you say that. They love their LBs. Smile

Personally, I hate the effect anyway. I thought they were supposed to be a cheap alternative to tilt/shift lenses, but I haven't yet seen one used as such.
