      Comments about Double Glass Optic for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses:

      The Lensbaby Double Glass Optic fits into one of the Lensbaby housings (they call them lenses) that then attach to selected SLR or DSLR cameras. Like all the others, there is no communication between this optic and the camera. The lens is a 50mm f/2 lens that produces an in-focus sweet spot that can be moved within the frame. The rest is out of focus, softly and beautifully blurred. Apertures are controlled by drop-in disks rather than a typical multi-element diaphragm for round specular highlights and beautiful bokeh but cumbersome exposure control. No autofocus. No aperture informqation passed to camera. Some cameras will not do any automatic functions with this optic.

      Comments about Double Glass Optic for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses:

      I got this Lensbaby optic because I bought the Composer pro with the Sweet 35. The Sweet 35 lens has no options on putting the macro kit and the creative aperture kit. With the Double glass optic, you can use these added accessories, and can be more creative with your photos. I used it for this Christmas holiday and I got alot of wonderful photos, most specially with the colorful lights all around. This is a nice, simple and easy lens that is a must for all Lensbaby users. You cannot have a Lensbaby and not have this! Its cheap too! GET IT!

      Interesting optic

      By Peter

      • Difficult to adjust

      Best Uses

      • Landscape/Scenery
      • Macro Photography

      Comments about Double Glass Optic for Lensbaby Composer, Muse, & Control Freak Lenses:

      There is not a huge difference between this and the more recently introduced 'sweet 35' that also own. The only way to adjust the aperture in the double glass is by means of changing the internal disk. This seems somewhat crude. Also, no other aperture disks or tool to change aperture is included – hence the 4 stars. What you have is an f4.0 lens with a sharp centre and blurred edges. The sweet 35 is much more flexible as it has a variable aperture included.
