Need some help with my Lensbaby Spark.. posted by hexhex November 27, 2012 05:57AM reply | quote

Hey guys,
I have some questions about my Lensbaby Spark, but I can't find somebody here who knows a little bit about Lensbabys. I tested the Lensbaby Spark on the Photokina and had an aperture (hope you call it like this) of 5.6 and then 2 in the spark. I don't know which type of optic is in it and this is why I need your help. :D
I want to buy different apertures like 2 or something and a different optic in it but I don't know where I can buy it.. I went to different camera stores in my hometown (Essen) and they don't even know that there a optics to swap in there.. well yeah. I wrote an email to the mailadress on the lensbaby homepage, but the answer was kind of useless.
So ... can anybody help me please? :D
(I am sorry for my bad english, hope you can still get my point)

The Spark, according to the products guide here at www.lensbaby.com states under the product guide:

Focal Length: 50mm
? Aperture: fixed f/5.6
? Optic: multi-coated glass doublet
? Focus type: manual
? Sweet spot, selective focus lens (creates a sweet spot of focus surrounded by gradually increasing blur)
? Available for Canon and Nikon mount DSLRs
? Focusing range: approximately 13” (33 cm) to infinity
? Compatible with Lensbaby Optic Swap System* and all Lensbaby 37mm threaded accessory lenses.
? No electronic communication between the lens and the camera body.

*All current Lensbaby optics will fit but Spark is not recommended for use with the Sweet 35, Fisheye and Edge 80 optics as these optics are heavy and it is difficult to hold the lens steady and focus.

If you need to see the list of optics available go to
www.lensbaby.com and look under the "products" menu on top
of the web site page..

If you decide you want to buy one, you can find some at various places on the internet...

Amazon.com, Ibay.com etc... or you can purchase one or some at the www.lensbaby.com site....

Hope this helps...

Monte
