I am really not used to how the focus ring is turned in the opposite direction when focusing with the lensbaby.

On a normal lens, with the camera pointed at my subject, the focus ring is turned clockwise to focus on something further away, and anti clockwise to focus on something that's closer.

This is the other way around on the lensbaby... issit just me?

So let me correct myself, I feel that it is reversed because I'm a Nikon user and have never tried the others...

So I guess it's my own fault =)

Celent, I shoot with Nikons too. The Lensbaby focus is full clockwise looking from through the viewfinder for close focus and counter clockwise for focus towards infinity, so you are correct it is reversed in the lensbaby vs Nikkor lenses.

Hope this answers your inquiry.
