I miss my Lensbaby 2.0: want to trade for Lensbaby Muse?

Asking Price
trade

Item Location
Somerville, MA

Item Description
A while ago, I sold my Lensbaby 2.0 and bought the Lensbaby Muse with double-glass optic, so I could use the swappable optic system. I like the zone plate optic, but overall, I find myself rarely using the lens, because the larger size is just enough to keep it out of the compartment in my camera bag I had it shoved in before. (Basically, the Muse is like another prime lens, where the 2.0 could be stuffed down in the corner.)

I'm thinking about getting the Scout for fisheye effect and to use with my pinhole optic.

But for basic old-school Lensbaby photography, I really just want the Lensbaby 2.0. But that might not be the case for everyone: if size isn't an issue for you, the Muse is nicer in several ways.

So, here's the deal: you send me your Lensbaby 2.0, I send you my Lensbaby Muse with double-glass optic. Plus all of the aperture rings and etc., of course.

Anyone?

I have a 2.0 that I rarely use becuase I have a hard time holding that accordian thingy steady while I shoot. I'm familiar with the composer, but reminde me what is the muse? Do you have a picture? Or I could look it up but I'm being lazy.

The Muse also has the bellows -- see Lensbaby - Muse .

It is as close to the Original and 2.0 as is currently made, but (as per above) is bigger and includes the optic-swap system. Also, it seems to be a bit stiffer, but that could be either sample variation or my imagination.

I actually tried the Composer, thinking I'd like it more, but I returned it. For me, it lacks the spontaneous in-the-moment fluidity of the bellows models. The Muse captures that, but I was happier with the older smaller model.

The Muse is stiffer than my LBO. Like the looser feel. The Composer can be as fluid as the 2.0 but it takes some practice. Have to learn to bend while focusing, all at the same time. Leave the ball loose and turn while bending.

thanks
