Blow past simple depth of field and make a new kind of portrait with our Sweet 80 Optic. Bring tack sharp focus to your subject while the surrounding area fills with compelling streaky bokeh.
The Composer Pro II lens body tilts and swivels, moving the area of focus. Simply swap out the inside optic, to create a variety of selective focus effects at different focal lengths.
Draw the viewer’s eye, highlight details in the foreground & background and blur out distractions.

Joining the sweet series of optics, the Sweet 80 adds that extra reach. Extra reach adds some wonderful compression and beautiful bokeh. I really enjoy having this option in my bag!
The Sweet 80 optic is sharp when you need it to be, but can create dreamy photographs. I use it on a Fujifilm APS-C crop camera, so it has a longer focal length of 120mm, which means it is even better for portraits. But also it has a great reach, and can be used for all sorts of photography, such as street photography and abstract landscapes.
I like it a lot. It takes a bit of getting used to with all manual adjustments, but the results are striking and kind of unexpected at times (in a good way(.
With this lens I really feel you capture the essence and inner workings of a subject’s thoughts and mind when doing portrait work
I am still experimenting, but I love the effects. It also has much less of a learning curve than the "Edge 80" (which I also own).The edge can produce great images, but it takes a while to hone in on that "slice" of focus. I'm typically a large aperture shooter, so this "Sweet 80" will be very fun for me to work with.
Just bought a sweet 80 from the great people at lensbaby, service was the usual excellent only exceeded by the beautiful sweet 80. Just loving this optic, why were they in such short supply.... If you like portraiture then get this optic its creamy smooth.
I love the Composer system! So easy to pop off my Edge 35, and pop on the Sweet 80! Also love the top notch customer service! I messed up entering my credit points, and Craig fixed it right away! Completely loving these tools to give clients something a little different along with their regular portraits!
