You love it or you hate it... but it is very nice using it on a APS-C camera

Or you shoot with a regular lens and selectively blur/smear areas in post.

The whole point of toy lenses is discovering the unplanned and unexpected effect-- and the way there is no "real" image to fall back on.  The "bad" image is all you get, and you have to find the beauty in it or discard it.

All you do with Lenbaby optics can be carried out in Photoshop indeed...but then you are missing the fun of it.

I don't know why you think Photoshop isn't fun.

Well its not the first double optic 50mm lensbaby by a longshot, there was the 2.0 and its something I still use, it must be about 18 years old now.

In photoshop, of course starting from raw files, you can do a lot of repair work, improvements where necessary and your own taste. It was part of my profession from 1995 to 2017. Now that I'm retired, I still use that program with full dedication.
