The Composer Pro refines and enhances the popular and award winning Lensbaby Composer by upgrading the swivel ball and focus mechanism to provide professional performance. The Composer Pro’s metal swivel ball design and refined focus mechanism deliver ultra-smooth focus and tilt control. The updated focus mechanism features a fluid and accurate dampened focus ring comparable to the focus mechanisms of the highest quality professional manual focus lenses.
This smooth, fluid operation makes the Composer Pro the perfect choice for discerning professional photographers and videographers who want to create ground-breaking creative imagery.
The Composer Pro ships with the Double Glass Optic installed. Each optic delivers a sweet spot of sharp focus that photographers can move around the photo by tilting the Composer Pro’s swiveling lens body. The Double Glass Optic, a 50mm selective focus optic with drop-in aperture discs, provides a tack-sharp Sweet Spot of focus with minimum diffusion at all aperture settings.

Have been shooting for over five years and wanted to explore a different kind of lens. I signed up for a class with Kathleen Clemons, Lensbaby Guru and ordered the Composer Pro with Double Glass Optic. It has been so much fun learning how to use it. I have found it to be easy but I know it will take time (and lots of practice) to get my photos perfect. Taking the class and having someone guide me in the learning process has been great.

These lenses require practice finding the sweet spot. They are optically sound and easy to use but not so easy for a user to become adept. Lots and lots of practice is required. But how is that any different from learning anything. So far I like what I've seen and others seem to like the results as well. Absolutely satisfied with the decision to include this lens in my bag.

In my line of work I am constantly looking for creative ways to see the world and show it to others. This lens by far is the best lens I have used in my career. It is the first personal lens I have bought and I was worried at first to stray away from conventional lenses but I have no regrets. I would definitely recommend this to any budding Photographer/Videographer looking for a creative spark.

Loving the fun effects I can get with my Lensbaby Composer Pro with Double Glass Optic! Had heard/read that it can be tricky to nail focus, but after playing with it for an afternoon at a local festival I came home with a satisfactory number of shots that I nailed the true focus. Wouldn't use this for every shot in a particular shoot, but it does add variety to a shoot, and it can be a great creative rut buster...when you just need to break out of your box/comfort zone and play around a little with your style. My only concern with this kit is the fragility of the aperture disks and keeping track of those little guys, but other than that I think the Lensbaby Composer with Double Glass Optic ROCKS!

I having been shooting with a DSLR for a little over a year, almost exclusively using auto. I was nervous about moving to manual - I have a Nikon D5100 which requires manual. But I couldn't believe the wonderful success I had even my first few times out. The lens is incredible and I am so excited about the creative pictures I am creating.

Very beautiful, ethereal photos (at least to me) with double optic first time out. As older photographer with less than perfect eyes, I worried about finding sweet spot and manual focus, I've had no problems. Lensbaby customer service exceeds expectations.
