    Hi experts [​IMG]

    I wanna buy a very creative gift for my boyfriend. He has a canon and has already got himself this lens:
    http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/co...modeli d=7469
    http://www.the-digital-picture.com/R...ns-Review.aspx

    Should I still buy him this:
    Lensbaby - The Composer?
    & here are the flickr pix taken by it: Flickr: "lensbaby" (or by lensbaby products..?)


    Would the composer lens add something new to his photography? Or could he get the same functionality with his new canon lens?

    Thank you,
    Sara

    That is a tough call. The LensBaby are very specialized lenses which not everybody likes. They have a bit of a learning curve. Personally I love my LensBaby, but I know quite a few photogs that don't. He may want a macro or a teleconverter or a flash, et cetera before a LensBaby ... so I'd sorta ask before I buy ... or make sure that there is a good return policy.
