I'm lovin' the Composer/Sweet 35 combo on my Pentax K10D. I'd love to use a similar set-up on my Panny GF1. Is this what I'm looking for? [bit.ly]

The reason I'm asking is that the LB store doesn't list micro 4/3 as an option for the Composer Pro/Sweet 35 bundle. Is B&H wrong?

I dug through the forum for a definitive post about micro 4/3, but couldn't find anything that provided a clear answer to my Q... thanks for any help!

I think the composer is sold in a kit with tilt transformer and 50 mm double glass optics for the micro 4/3,just like the Sony nex kit.

For the GF-1 (or any Micro 4/3 camera) you'll need a Tilt Transformer with Composer attachment, which unfortunately will not work with the Sweet 35. If you crave a wider lens you could use the 0.6x or 0.42x wideangle converters on the standard 50mm optics.

Thanks, folks.

I'll keep shooting with the k10D/Composer/Sweet35 combo for now. It's great that we finally have an aperture ring in the Sweet 35. I'm getting some stunning nature shots with this set-up!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for a Micro 4/3 Composer|Composer Pro that'll allow use of the Sweet 35.

So I guess B&H Photo needs to correct the information on this page: [bit.ly]

Superthor & Russ,
The best thing to put on your Tilt Transformer is a Scout! That way you can use the Fisheye or the Sweet 35 and have the metal ball professional grade tilt that the Tilt Transformer offers. I use the Tilt Transformer + Scout combo on a Sony NEX 3 for almost all of my Lensbaby shot and it works wonderfully.

That's a great idea. A Nikon-fit Scout on a TT, genius.

I wonder what would happen if you put a Composer on a TT... Bend one one way, bend the other the other way, intriguing :)

All I really want is a M4/3 mount Composer so I can use the Sweet 35 on my GF1.

Ping me when that happens, okay?
