*The original Composer has been discontinued. Please check out the Composer Pro with Double Glass or the Composer Pro with Sweet 35 instead. The Composer Pro is an improved and upgraded version of the original Composer, and is available with either the Double Glass or Sweet 35 Optic installed.*
The award winning Composer is our most versatile lens, delivering smooth selective focus photography with unparalleled ease. Popular among professionals who love the unlimited bending freedom, full functionality and the added control of a locking ring.
The Composer retains its position after being bent without a locking button, and is easy to use with one hand. Photographers do not squeeze the lens to focus, but simply tilt the lens to a desired angle and then focus with a traditional barrel focusing ring. The Composer is compatible with the Lensbaby Optic Swap System.

I purchased the Muse a little more than three years ago, but recently I was asked to do some portrait work and weddings so I needed a little more control over the effect. Straight out of the box I was able to use the Composer.

I see how it's not as fluid moving as the pro could be, but I don't care, it works wonderfully! The quality is worth the money and it's so simple to use.
It's a very well thought out design.
There shall be many photographs to be taken with this thing, photographs I would've never been able to take before.

A favorite secret weapon of mine for fashion and portrait photography. I own the typical 50L , 85L and 135L for doing the above mentioned tasks but this GEM does an amazing job that rivals the L glass in sharpness @ its sweet spot. Finally a lens that matches my own creativity.
