    I've always wondered: It is an easy lens to use? As in, fast to use, or I have to take my time with adjustments and all. Some people have suggested it for weddings, but I always had the impression that it is very fiddly to use.

    not hard to focus at least, just that it isn't exactly the normal way of focusing

    my mind gripe with it is that it is fully manual.. no metering whatsoever too. so not sure if you will be able to gauge the exposure quickly and change settings.. since weddings seem to have a variety of lighting situations. but then that depends on the photographer, i guess. me, i always have to fiddle around to get it correct

    if its useless then why he sell? tok ****...the lens is for people who like to break the norm...the ones who hate it are just uptight...

    hehe i like precision and repeatability and it lets me do that...the 2.0 is alittle too much hands on for me and multitasking is already had to do when you're shooting

    Not sure how many of you play musical instrument, other lens are like playing guitar when the flat are marked. Lensbaby are like playing violin which you need to feel it yourself.
    Shouldn't be a problem when you get used to it.

    fyi CP isn't the best store to go to for bargains...but they are the exclusive agent of LB here...that's why they can charge what they want for it...there are other ways to get your money's worth for the LB and not pay CP's exhorbitant price...

    I just went thru the website, the way they use the LB2.0 without lock, seems to be v difficult to use. Wondering will i get sharp focus on the sweet spot.

    see my website on LB. All shot with the 2.0. I use a different focusing technique. I'm just not used to their technique.
