    I recommend this product

    Simple and so fun to use!

    I have loved using the Sol 45. I had a chance to use it over the weekend in Plymouth, MA and I love the effects I was getting in some of the images. This lens is a great lens to get if you're new to Lensbaby. I'm excited to use this lens throughout the summer.
