Hi all,

I'm curious (very) on these lenses - they look and create quite facinating images. On thier web page they state: "a Lensbaby does not communicate electronically with your camera body"

My question is how do you meter using them ?

I'll be using it on a D2X so I gather I'd need to meter manually is this right ?

Here's a link to the site: http://www.lensbabies.com/xcart/customer/home.php?cat=1

Hi Simon,

Yes, the Lensbaby is a fun lens to experiment with. With the D2H (and I believe the D2X also has this feature), you can set the f/stop in the menu system, so the camera can meter properly.

Hi Gale,

I have one and I am trying to sell mine. I can't figure out how to use it plus I want another lens so to satisfy my LLD, I need to sell it. I put this on the for sale forum. It is barely 2 weeks old.
