Summary: The macro kit was complete and new. I just don't care for the manual focus of the Lensbaby. As I use Manual focus, I find it very hard to tell when the Lensbaby even has a focus point. It's a nice toy for the amateur or save up like a pro for a tilt shift.
Summary: I had the Lensbaby Composer for a week before getting the macro kit. The Composer... Awesome. The Composer with the macro lens(s) is just unreal. You can expect crystal clear images with the 4x from 10"-16", the 10x lens will get you excellent shots from ~5-10 inches.
Summary: i was looking for a lens that i could do close ups with and lensbaby appealed to me. i saw some shots taken with them on shuttercal.com and went to the lensbaby site. pretty cool. i bought the muse and the focusing took a little getting use to but when you nail a shot it's pretty dang cool.
Summary: I received the Lensbaby Composer as a birthday gift back in June and I was immediately hooked. The creative possibilities with this selective focus lens are incredible. I have since bought most of the accessories and alternative optics for the system to expand my repetoire.
Summary: So I have heard many things about the lensbaby lenses and finally, I pulled the trigger, the price was right and I was looking for something more for my work. The lensbaby lenses are not you out of the box instant perfection kind of lens, you need to learn the feel and focus of these things, adjust...
Summary: The Lensbaby does not focus very closely. Without the macro kit, you'll likely find shooting situations where you just can't get close enough to the subject to capture your vision. This kit resolves that problem and opens up the whole macro world for you.
Summary: I was using the macro part of the wide angle/macro lens for my macro shots, and I while I like being able to get that close, I didn't want to always have to. So, I got this little kit. The +4 does very nice for shortening up your focal length, with the +10 really taking you into macro territory.
Summary: I bought these to use with my Lensbaby Muse and I have been really happy with them. They add so much more versatility to the Lensbaby experience. Very good, quality construction and no obvious image distortion, although the Muse is all about care free, light hearted photography.
