    Sweet 80

    My overall experience using the Sweet 80 has been phenomenal. Having used all the other sweet optics, this lens is fast becoming my favorite of them. I love the compression of the longer focal length and the built in close up function. Using this lens on a crop sensor camera has also been quite beneficial as it makes the 80 focal length 1.6x longer, so roughly 130mm.I have enjoyed the learning curve of this, and every Lensbaby lens. Highly recommend it.

    A fun lens!

    I've only used Sweet 80 a couple times so far, and still need to get more comfortable with it. Lensbaby optics are comparatively inexpensive, and take up little space in my backpack. This optic works well with composer pro, an extension tube for close focus, and a homemade cardboard lens hood covered in black gaffer tape (to reduce glare). Sweet lenses fit my photographic style well, because I like to shoot sharp subjects, at medium and small apertures floating before a distant soft background. I already own Sweet 35, and thought the longer focal length of Sweet 80 would complement it to give additional options. BTW, I really like the new one-size-fits-all optic containers. The old containers were kind of a pain, because I could never figure out which optic belonged to which container as the containers were all different sizes. While on the topic of ergonomics, it would be cool if composer had a quick release mechanism to make it easier to get the optic out when wearing gloves in cold weather. Thanks for making photography fun!
