    Perfect amount of blur.

    Burnside 35 seems easier to use hand held than some other Lensbaby lenses I own. I bracket my focus a bit and it does the rest. A good choice for swirly bokeh on crop sensor camera. I’m working mostly on flower portraits and it is doing the job really well.

    Turns the often bland winter woods into a forest of mystery

    As with all the Lensbaby lenses, the Burnside 35 takes some practice (read: playing, experimenting) to find what sort of backgrounds, and what foreground-to-background separation, works best. It's well worth the effort. There's a wide range of effect, capable of evoking a wide range of emotions. Loving it!

    Easy to Use

    It's easy to achieve a crisp center focus and a beautiful swirled bokeh that doesn't take away from the subject, and I love, love, love the adjustable vignette. It's pretty perfect for the way I shoot.

    Specialty lens for special effects

    This is a lens that you buy to use at a low aperture to get that swirlly bokeh effect. It works! I have gotten amazing shots of stationary objects that look like they are spinning. I love this lens, but for a very narrow purpose.

    Lens 35

    Any product that deliberately creates vignettes is (real) OTB thinking. Bravo. :) And a slide ring is genius.
