composer and tilt transformer for 4/3

I can find little information about this unit so I have some questions. Can this tilt transformer be used with 4/3 lenses as well as a 4/3 body? Does the composer lens come off the tilt transformer to allow the 4/3 lens to fit? Is the Olympus 50mm f2.0 4/3 lens suitable for tilting and macro work? Can I use Olympus macro extensions with the tilt transformer?

Hi there,

The Composer with Tilt Transformer is for Micro Four Thirds and takes Nikon lenses.

To explain further (since I have one), the tilt transformer takes Nikon lenses only, not m4/3 or 4/3. The TT is in m4/3 mount and then ITS mount is for a Nikon lens. You also have a separate unit called Front Focus which mounts into the TT and essentially makes a Composer.

I really enjoy the Tilt converter with a Nikkor 28/2 and 24/2.8 but unfortunately it will not mount on my new Olympus OMD--it won't fit under the EVF. I will continue to use it with my Panasonic G3 though.

The tilt transformer/composer is no longer in production according to Kristen Hunter at Lensbaby, however, for the OM-D there is a composer pro that will work with the Lensbaby optics, but not with Nikon lenses.
