I brought one of the original lensbabies in their early days, shipped from Uk since no UK stockist at the time. Initial problem was that the auto sensing pin on my Nikon F4 jammed with a recess on the mount. Sorted out with a replacement. The F4 gives things away a bit, my best images have been on film and I seldom scan. Now full frame so DoF gains to their full so things will hopefully change.
UK camera club judges just don't "get it" when as a slide, they think it is a digital image that has been converted to a slide. Likewise, when as a digital image they think it has been manipulated.
