With the Composer, Lensbaby introduces a completely new lens, based on a ball and socket configuration that delivers smooth selective focus photography with unparalleled ease. The new Composer retains its position after being bent and is easy to use even with one hand. Photographers no longer have to squeeze the lens to focus, but can simply tilt the lens to a desired angle and then focus with a traditional barrel focusing ring. The Composer stays in the desired bent position without requiring a locking mechanism and features the new Lensbaby Optic Swap System.
The Composer features a unique manual focus design which requires more rotation to move the optic as you approach infinity. This makes it easier to focus on objects at intermediate and distant depths than regular manual focus lenses. More
The Composer is a breeze to use. Simply bend the lens to move the Sweet Spot and focus with the Composer's unique barrel focus mechanism, which automatically dampens the focus action as you approach infinity.
The Composer stays in its bent position without needing to be locked. If you want to ensure the Composer will not move during an extended shooting session, you can lock the lens's position by rotating the locking ring. This locking feature makes the Composer the ideal Lensbaby lens for studio photography or for any situation where you want longer or repeated exposures.

Comments about Lensbaby Composer - Four Thirds fit:
I have an Olympus E-1 from when they were first launched back then I loved it but lost interest over the years as money issues ment I was stuck with just the kit lens which doesn't let much light in fumbles with focusing and isn't sharp when it does focus and strangles the already limited low light capability of the early 4/3 sensor. So when I saw this on the site and realized it would open up to f/2 I thought well at [$] odd its worth a go if not it can go [...].Well? Its not going[...]! I always put it in my pocket now because what ever my shooting intentions are its disappointing not have it with me when the situation arises, its not suited to every shot but when its right its very right and easy and quick to use. Stick it on, select A and your good to go twist to focus and snap no lag from the camera just done quick no fuss all fun. The 'neck'? has a lot of range more than needed and the tension ring works well, so much that if you do it up tight the 'neck' wont move at all. The aperture rings are easy to change not that I do much! It comes with a removing magnet tool with a compartment to hold the apeture rings protected with what looks like a film canister lid all neat and compact i keep mine in the little bag provided and clip it to my strap. The bad? well the focus ring doesn't have much/any resistance which makes it awkward to fine tune at times and feels cheap letting the side down for the rest of the construction which is well made from chunky alloy. It has given my E-1 a dusting off and I'm in love with photography again and have just opened a Flickr account. Since opening the box I've taken well over 2000 shots with it where ever I go to take photos at some point it will get used and its still surprising me with the results now, when I'm out taking pics, In my minds eye I'll see HDR shots, B&W shots, colour shots and now lensbaby shots. It looks like a gimmicky fun product but it can produce serious images that no other lens would of.I would give five stars if not for the focus ring issue, but a very good investment regardless.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
