Summary: i get the most compliments on photos taken with this lens than with any other, and i own quite a few. super fun to use. i have never changed the aperture discs since i put the first one in, so it's pretty much always wide open, taking advantage of the shallow depth of field (which is kind of the point of a lens like this.) great lens, worth every penny.
Summary: Suggestion : Shud make a mark on the rotating ball the position which is perfect zero degree !! Quite hard to find the standard default position of the lens. But all other functions is much fantastic !!!
Summary: I enjoyed using this gadget with my Sony NEX 6 camera. I attached the Lensbaby transformer to my camera, and then attached a Nikon 35mm f1.8 lens to the Lensbaby. It was a bit of a challenge to use, but I read the instructions and got the hang of it pretty quickly. This is a setup for taking special effects photos, and you have to fiddle with it and *think.* Which is part of the fun for me. I'll upload a few images that I shot with this setup.
Summary: I saw this and was very happy someone finally created what I thought was an obvious need in the industry. I ordered it and realized it would not work on my F mount cameras. It accepts my lenses but the description of this item is misleading because it will not work on a DSLR. I wish they would make one for DSLR's!!!
Summary: I bought this when the price was around $100. It's not the most precisely made adapter/lens and, yes, it wiggles at time but it generally works and it's the nicest tilter for less than $100 I've used. The tilter by itself is a steal but the Composer/Double Glass lens is a nice bonus.
blurry or extreme depth of field photos can be beautiful too

Summary: I had purchased the Lensbaby tilt transformer for the micro 4:3s cameras with the Nikon F lens mount for more than what I paid for the tilt transformer with the composer lens, but mainly since it also includes the Nikon F lens mount. This will allow me to turn many of my old manual focus Nikon F lenses into tilt lenses for a fraction of the cost of the Nikon or Canon EOS tilt lenses.
Summary: The lensbaby works as promised and is only slightly awkward in use. The special effects possible with a tilt/shift lens of a visual "slice" of in focus area with other areas moving to blur is easily achieved with the lensbaby, but without the control of a genuine tilt/shift lens, (which of course has use in everything from tabletop to landscape work, but is very much more expensive).
Summary: Construction is awsome....wish there was some lever or ring to control aperture....but it is made very well...has a solid feel. The effects are fun. I mate it with my Sony FS100 video camera...
