What is the Optic Swap System?

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.

    If tilted for area of focus should have marks to set more easily to neutral?

    I am in the midst of learning to focus and using the macro filters. My experience has been very good. Suggestion: After tilted for one shot and. return to neutral should have some sort of marks to expedite effort.

    Fast Delivery, Intuituitive to Use and Superb Build Quality

    As advertised Lensbaby Corporation delivered the lens in time. That made me very happy, because I was very excited to see it in my hands. The lens has a solid construction in its two parts, meaning the Composer Pro II and the Sweet 50 optic swap. It felt like a professional lens in my hands, even though its price es relatively reasonable. Many people can add this lens into their photographic arsenal. That is good. I read the Users Guide which consists of only one page written in English and the rest in a language which I presume to be Chinese, Korean or a similar language. The instructions were well written with very good photographs in black and white which helps to get started without much fuss. At this time, the lens is attached to my Canon DSLR EOS Rebel T2i camera. On Sunday I plan to buy some flowers to take my first shots. Of course they will be shared with a Lensbaby Club which I recently joined. Very friendly people eager to help and to share their experiences. That is all I have to say at this time. My main objective is learning how to photograph flowers following the suggestions and tips from Kathleen Clemons. .I have chosen her to be my muse and mentor in flower photography.

    So far I love it!

    I have only begun using this lens, but I wanted something to help me with my creativity in my photography. This is pretty simple to use, though manual focusing is something I don't do often, so there is a bit of a learning curve. My only criticism is that the images seem a bit more grainy than with other lenses, even in full sunlight.
