What's the difference? It appears that the lensbaby effect can be achieved through Photoshop... so, why buy a lensbaby? I'm in the market for a "fun" lens that gives different perspective, just as a toy. Lately I've tried to rationalize all purchases, on a "will this pay for itself?" basis. Anyway, now I'm just looking for a unique lens...either a Lensbaby or a lens that goes to 10mm.
