New Product Announcement - Macro Converters! posted by Keri (Admin) February 02, 2012 02:34AM reply | quote

Today we are launching our brand-new Macro Converters - these will work with all Lensbaby lens bodies and optics in the Optic Swap System (including Sweet 35!). They pop into your lens body, then, you insert the optic into the converter. There are two - an 8mm and a 16mm, that can also be stacked. Plus - if you have a Double Glass, Single Glass, Plastic, Soft Focus, or Pinhole/Zone plate you can use them in conjunction with our Marco Kit filters. Check them out! :) [lensbaby.com]

I have the macro kit: what would be the effective difference between this and the macro converter?

Would there be a difference in photo quality between the macro converters vs the kit? The kit and converter obviously look different and are priced a little different. Just wondering what other differences there are between them besides the amount of magnification.

Hey! I was just wondering this too.

I would love to know the difference between macro lenses.

I suppose macro converters don't have a lens, so they don't take off image quality (sharpness), but you must need bigger apertures.

Am I wrong?

Can somebody help me figure this out?

I've got a Lensbaby 2.0. The product release says the macro converters support all Lensbaby optics, but mine isn't listed.

Hi Toddler - they will only work with the lenses that use the optic swap system, so not with the 2.0.

Hope that helps,

Cheers,

Sergej

Keri just a short note, i notice that when the macro converters are installed on either of my lens bodies,that there is a little bit of play and the converters and optic will wobble slightly.
