    Great colors and beautiful swirl

    The Twist is fantastic! The colors, the swirling effect and its very little weight make this lens a go to lens! Use it to add magic to your every day life and to shoot extraordinary!

    Twist purchase

    Love it. The surprise was that it’s a great landscape lens. I’m still experimenting with it. May be my imagination but landscapes seem to take on a slightly different look in a good way from equivalent primes

    Unique Effect

    I’ve greatly enjoyed using this lens to create unique portraits of my family and pets. It’s worth it for photos in front of holiday lights alone. The swirly effect is versatile, too—you can create swirls, or you can surround your subject with cat’s eye bokeh balls, or simply frame them with something akin to a strong vignette. All these are much more natural-looking than manipulating a photo in post processing. This lens is a great value, too; it's not the only lens that creates swirly bokeh, but it’s higher quality than a lot of the vintage ones you can buy and doesn’t need an adapter, and it’s smaller, lighter, and cheaper than a lot of the reissues of those same vintage lenses. And the Optic Swap system is a great system to buy into in general.

    Beautiful effects on a FF camera.

    Nice effects with this one. Works well on FF camera. Not very impressive on a crop sensor. Requires the right backgrounds for great effects.

    Twist60, a fantastic addition!

    I received this lens a few days ago and have truly fallen in love with it! The focus is so crisp and clear! The swirl created around subjects is fun, creative, and so very unique! This is a great lens to start with if you are new with Lensbaby for there isn't much learning curve. It's great in nature and with people, and the flare it creates is stunning!
