Why a Soft Focus Lens?

Canon have released a new Soft Focus lens.

Why might anyone buy one of these? Could you not just emulate the effect by either:

  • using a normal lens and manually setting focus to be slightly off
  • adding a smeary filter
  • adding blur in post processing

I don't want one, but I'm just intrigued.
