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. I highly recommend these macro lenses for your Lensbaby.
Summary: I already had a lensbaby composer and wanted to get an introduction to some abstract macro photography. This has allowed me to. The bokeh as amazing as usual with the lens. Focusing can be tedious at +10, but I feel you should expect that with macro photography. Came in a nice pouch to hold both of them. I think it was supposed to come with an aperture change tool but it didn't, but it doesn't bother me since I got one with the lens initially.
Summary: I read about lensbaby products in a photography magazine my wife gets. Thinking it might be cool, I ordered her one, with some of the accessories, like this macro kit. If you own or buy a lensbaby, get this kit! She has a 5d mk ii with the usual L lenses, and this is her favorite lense that didn't cost 2500.00. I was suprised at how small the macro lenses are, but they are effective. And you get a cool little case for them.
Summary: I use a Lensbaby Composer and it is not a lens I use often for serious photography. It is more of a photographers toy, but this simple cheap piece of glass really works well for what it does. Turn on the flash put a small aperture take a photo with one of these guys and they are really great shots. With the small aperture you can get a large field of view in focus which I have not seen with many macro shots.
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. Obviously the two stacked brings you back within 2-3" of your subject.
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. I had no idea that the Lensbaby would be a prospective tool for macro photography. To my pleasant surprise, some of my favorite Lensbaby shots are taken with the macro kit. The provided filters are optically sharp.
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 your camera settings and lighting and get creative.
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. The entire system is so reasonably priced that it's hard not to buy all of the options.
