Fun to use

Tiras, Amazon
22 December 2012
  • Summary: This lens is super fun to use. The aperture inserts are a bit cheesy and cheap feeling but they serve their function nicely. The lens also seems a bit shaky on my Sony A-300 and A-500 but has never come off.

Luckily not everyone has what it takes to learn to use this Lens system.

  • Summary: The disappointed users of this lens are clearly not cut out to learn anything more advanced than their cell-phone camera and that's perfectly OK. I wouldn't want to see anything they would consider artistic anyway. For those of us who understand the behavior (or want to!

Surprisingly easy to control

Gavin Jenkins, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: I was slightly concerned about buying this, due to the seeming popularity of the versions like composer that lock in place (and are much more expensive). I should not have been concerned. Within maybe 5 minutes, I had the hang of it just fine.

Lensbaby toy - very expensive

Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: Lensbaby is a very expensive piece of plastic with little or no practical use. It's very hard to get the results you want because the effect is so pronounced with little user control.

Only for the very few

Car Audio Buff, Amazon
4 August 2011
  • Summary: If you want to take a photograph where technical shortcomings are the main aspect of your photos. then this device is for you. A very few photographers take this approach, such as with the Holga camera, and now with Lensbaby, and they defend this choice quite vigorously.

Lensbaby Composer - First Impressions

John Morgan "I'm a professor at the Haas Scho..., Amazon
18 May 2011
  • Summary: While I love to shoot, I felt like I was stuck in a rut photographically. I ended up shooting similar things over and over and, while images of flowers and birds and trees are nice, after your one millionth shot of a rose, somehow the spark of excitement had gone completely out of it. So what to do?

Lens. Baby

Jack, Amazon
21 March 2011
  • Summary: Read about this thing in a magazine, so momma got it for a birthday present, along with some of the accessories. Absolutely her favorite lense that didn't cost 2500.00. Bought her a Canon fisheye, for rediculous cash, which hasn't left the bag because of this little baby.

Puts fun back into photography.

W. Brzozowski, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: (Note: I have the double-glass optic version, not the plastic one, so my review is in regards to that version of the Composer.) I had an impression of the whole Lensbaby thing as a gimmick, until I actually bought the Muse and tried it.
