It’s been almost a decade since Lensbaby Spark was introduced. It has been discontinued in the meantime, and its replacement has just been announced. Lensbaby Spark 2.0 is a new (and still affordable) way of achieving selective focus, and it comes in as many as eight mounts.

The first change you’ll notice in Lensbaby Spark 2.0 compared to its predecessor is the change in the aperture. While the v.1 has fixed f/5.6 aperture, the Spark 2.0 features a f/2.5-22 adjustable aperture range and a 12-blade diaphragm. The Spark 2.0 is delivered with the Sweet 50 optic and made to be used with the Optic Swap System. Similar to its previous version, the Spark 2.0 has an accordion-like design that provides up to 30° tilt in any direction. The minimum focusing distance is 1.1′ for working with close-up subjects, making this lens more versatile.

Here are the full specs:

    I would actually enjoy using a lens baby now that I have live view.

    I used to have one in my Pentax days.
