"Out of all the Lensbaby lenses I've shot with, this has been my favorite. The focal length is wonderful and I'm able to use it for just about every genre of photography genre, from macro to lifestyle."
"Shooting with the Sol 45 is a blast! It's simple to use and renewed the magic of using a Lensbaby for me."
"The Sol 45 is so unique in its style. It gives me a new perspective and an original way to capture photos and videos."
"There are no clichés with this lens, it's just a bunch of fun."
"While the Sol is designed for blur, it is impressively sharp within the sweet spot "
-Hillary K. Grigonis
" It allows you to make photos with the signature Lensbaby look"
"Simple and fun to use."
I love the Sol 45. It is my first Lensbaby and a great intro to the world of selective focus. It is lightweight, which is a nice change of pace from my usual lenses, but also feels well built. Love the bokeh blades. I've only had a couple of opportunities to shoot with it so far, but I can already tell that it is going to be a go-to!
I absolutely love this lens. It's so easy to use and always gets me out of a creative rut because it can really make the most simple thing look unique. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like a fixed fstop, but I been nice not to have to think about another setting.
Amazing and fun! Great for dramatic fine art shoots.
So far so good with this lens. I've used it a few times and love the results. It is easy to focus and on a tripod, it's easy to see the sweet spot with the camera's live view. I look forward to spring and flower season to use my lensbaby lenses.
It was fun! A quick 15 minute walk with new Sol 45 on my camera turned into a two hour wonderful experience! Easy to get to know and so much fun to play with and I love the results!
