    I love my new lensbaby and everything that goes with it. I just have one caution for this kit. It is extremely difficult to punch or cut the discs. I finally did it with a sturdy punch but ruined two of them first. The LB and all of the accessories are about creative fun. If you are into control and technical perfection, they may not be for you. I've heard it said and it is true that chaos is part of the fun. Remember that when buying the LB and accessories.

    I haven't used all the different kit bits yet. The apertures look pretty straightforward to use with my double glass optic, and I've successfully changed the aperture on that.

    The macro extender tubes come in a cute plastic carrying case. I didn't really see the point at first. Then I couldn't figure out how to attach them. So I tried reading the instructions leaflet. It said to remove the optic as instructed in the optic's instruction leaflet. Only... the optic didn't have instructions on how to remove it! After a little poking online, I did find instructions on Lensbaby's website... in a video. I know this isn't B&H's fault, but really guys, not everyone can hear or follow video instructions. I managed, but it should not be the only method of instruction the user gets.

    The cute plastic carrying case is not just a cute plastic carrying case. The black lid is the optic swap tool, and you line it up with the slots on your optic, press down, and the optic drops into your hand. Because the lid is black plastic, it isn't easy to see that it's covered in a simple instruction diagram.

    Once I got over that hurdle, the macro extenders are great fun.

    Since I'm using my lens on a micro 4/3 camera, I don't expect the teleconverter and wide angle converter to be super useful. The double glass optic is 50mm, so it works like 100mm on my camera. And I spend a lot of time using a 90 or 100mm focal length. 0.6 wide angle converter on a 100mm lens works out to 60mm... Not exactly wide angle. And a 1.6 teleconverter gets me 160mm. Most of the time I'd be more likely to use my long zoom. I *do* like the thinking in how the kit was put together tho. It gives the user a lot of options to play with. Options are good.

    Adds versatility to your lensbaby

        Comments about Accessory Kit for Lensbaby:

        This set is an inexpensive way of adding versatility to your Lensbaby. I like to shoot wide angle and I'd like to shoot wider than this wide angle attachment allows but it still comes in handy. I have the super wide attachment which has a focal length I prefer but with my full sensor I have to keep it centered to avoid seeing the lens so you lose the LB effect, but with this wide angle attachment your able to bend the lens more before seeing the lens which I like. Using the aperture kit at night you can turn street lights into colorful stars or any shape you choose. I've been having fun with that. The macro is interesting as you explore things on a smaller scale. I look forward to playing around with this kit more. It helps add to the creative possibilities of Lensbaby.

          I use the Lens Baby line of products primarily for video applications.

          While not a replacement for a traditional marco lens or Wide Angle adapter these versatile little guys adds so much style to a close up shot or enhancing the viewing angle.

          Most of the effects could be accomplished in post production. However, I find I'm more creative and the end result is more organic feeling when using the Lens Baby line of Products.

              I bought the accessory kit mostly for the macros since I do not have a dedicated Macro lens. All of the lenses are easy to attach and come with their own carry bags so they don't get damaged. I haven't tried the creative discs yet, but the entire kit is well developed and made. True LensBaby quality.

                I love this accessory kit for my Composer Lensbaby.
                I use the wide angle a lot, and love it.
                Also, the macro is awesome,
                as I don't have a macro lens.
                I like it for ring shots.
                The telephoto is great, too.
                I'm very happy I purchased this set.

                  Great to have as add ons to any Lensbaby system.
                  I use this kit with my Double Glass, Single Glass, and Pinhole lenses with great results from each of them. I have not had a chance to use the custom bokeh discs yet, but will be trying them soon.

                  The macro kit offers choices of how you want to frame the subject by adjusting how close you are to it (with the two included macro filters).

                  I found the telephoto and wide angle a breeze to swap in and out while hiking, and both delivered quality photographs.

                  I'd suggest any newcomer to Lensbaby pick up this kit with your order.

                  The kit is great, I really wanted the Macro add on. I realize that the lens isn't a great optical lens, but the "lens baby effect" is awesome. Now I can use it for tight detail shots. It gives me the ability to spice up the everyday shot.

                  Extending the range of the Lensbaby is easy to do with the optics and with these accessories. It's fun to achieve great bokeh and blurs with a wide angle.

                        This kit is a great edition to any Lensbaby Lens. It's a great value pack, and everything comes with it's own little pouch.

                        The one thing I didn't like about it is that the Wide Angle and Telephoto optics are nearly impossible to tell apart when they're in their pouches. I solved this problem by tying different colored bits of thread to their drawstrings.

                        I use this kit with the Lensbaby Muse

                        Excellent accessory for my lensbaby. The wide angle lens is super sharp and the macro lenses are great at getting in close! Worth every penny!

                          This is the perfect accessory set for the lensbabies. Within a couple of days of getting this product i used every peice.
                          The macro filters are fun to play with and the wide angle and telephoto attachments make the lens itself more versatile.
                          The only issue is with the telephoto and wide angle attachments you lose how wide your "sweet spot" can go, but its just an inherit part of the design.
                          And the fact that every peice has its own pouch makes transportation and storage much easier.

                            Necessary kit if you are buying the Lensbaby. Lots of options, but I am partial to the macro part. Still have not mastered the lens, but this kit gives me a lot of the options right out of the gate, so I get to experiment and find a place for this lens.
