Anyone have one? I'm interested to hear thoughts on this. It seems like a fun lens, and a possible Christmas gift (to myself), but I hadn't even heard of the brand until recently.

Bought one few months ago for my 40D and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I've gotten a lot of interesting shots especially with the macro accessory lenses. Takes some getting used to, and many shots don't give exactly what I want (thank Science for digital!) but sometimes the surprise is fun. Definitely opened creative possibilities.

Tremendous amount of fairly inexpensive fun. I always have the Composer in my bag with a variety of optics and attachments. Get one with double glass optic and you'll either love it and get totally hooked or you'll hate it. Seems like there's two camps on them, the lovers and the haters. :-)

I have the composer, with the macro and WA (.42x) converters as well as the Fish Eye optic. There are definitely 2 camps, can't get enough and can't be bothered. You can create the same effects in Photoshop, but I started with film and like to do things in camera. Get one and enjoy.
