The Twist 60 works best and is recommended for use with full frame cameras. Much of the swirled blur gets lost when using the optic with an APS-C sensor.

The Twist optic, known more for the swirl of bokah, produces very nice effects. I learned to achieve the swirl your subject should be about 6-7 feet from the camera.� I really like this optic.

One of best recent Lensbaby lens. Easy to get great results. Best effects when wide aperature and when there's separation of subject and background. Immediate success!!! I highly recommend.

Nice optical effect on full frame camera.� Haven't tried DX format yet. Only negative is it is hard to tell when it locks into the base so I had it fall out on the pavement when I used it the first time. Luckily it is sturdy and did not damage it. Other than that it would be 5 stars as it is easy to use and provides wonderful images.� My first photo with it is attached.

question

What's the difference between the Twist 60 Optic and the Twist 60?
Asked by: Tracy Ellen
If you do not have any of our other lens bodies, I would recommend the Twist 60 sold in a straight lens body. If you already own a Composer Pro or Scout, you can purchase the Twist 60 Optic separately and use it in that, pointed straight ahead for best results.

question

Is it compatible with Lensbaby Composer Pro?
Asked by: Ricardo A.
Yes, the Twist 60 optic is compatible with the Composer Pro. Keep it pointed straight ahead for best results. This optic works best on a full-frame camera. Crop sensor cameras will notice a lot of the effect will be cropped out unless the aperture is wide open.
