Go cheap. Unless you are using heavy lenses. Lensbaby is light.
Sam is right in pointing out it will be a pretty long lens (narrow
angle of view) on S8 -- so not too useful probably. You could
experiment using toilet paper tubes, masking tape, and a couple of
cheap eBay close-up lenses and magnifying glasses instead, and might
find a combo that is wider. The physical length of the collapsed LB
limits you on the short end of focal length. The LB is essentially a
commodized toilet paper tube with lens mount and diopter. Brakhage
didn't need any LB and probably didn't need the TP tube either.
