took these shots with the new macro converters.
the first Two are with the fisheye optic and 16mm converter.
the third shot is fishey with 8mm the last two are double glass both 16&8mm converters and both macro filter lenses stacked.
with the fisheye macro i find that if you use both converters you end up bumping your subject.
images one two and three apear to have an orange heartat the bottom of the dew drop.
pictured here my daughters seed growing experiment.

just one other note make sure your glass is clean as for some reason these converters show off every detail including the dust on your lens.

Those are amazingly sharp!

I am still trying to figure out the composer pro... it isn't easy to find the sweet spot. And, my Nikon D60 doesn't meter and only works in full manual with the Lensbaby, so this is a huge learning curve for me. But seeing images like this, is encouraging. Thanks. :)

I have a canon t2i and it works in aperture mode nicely i just have to watch it doesn't bump my iso too high.

they are a nice addition to my bag of weapons but i am definitely questioning the 50 dollar USD price point add in shipping from lensbaby hq and it cost me close to 70 i think they are priced a bit high for what they are. sorry lensbaby admin.

I've ordered the converters albeit somewhat dubiously, since I have the macro kit. You're giving me a sense of the potential. Perhaps this was too much of an indulgence, but I love macro photography.
