"It's pure magic that the Sweet 50 creates when it comes to bokeh. No other lens could have created the mysterious bokeh effect around my subject.
"My favorite lens is the Sweet 50 because its dreamy blur effect makes my work looks unique, strong, and moody. It’s such fit for my character"
"The Composer Pro with Sweet 50 is on my camera for 90% of my shooting. I love love love it!"
Morgaine La Fay
"You can achieve some pretty amazing effects and approach your photography from another angle."
Hard to get use to so go slow, even use a tripod. Keep f stop at f.4. Shoot away, try and get your flowers full frame or fill the sensor with subject direct.
Switched from the Canon EF to RF model and it doesn’t miss a beat. This is an excellent lens.
Although I’m new to Lensbaby lenses, I am blown away by this lens! I have used it for flowers (macro) and also landscape photos. The performance was outstanding and surprised me with the amount of sharpness in the sweet spot. Focus was a little tricky at first but not too difficult to learn. It is a lens that I plan to have in my bag and use often. I like seeing the world in a new way.
I recently got a Composer Pro II with the sweet 50. To say this has exceeded my expectations is a severe understatement. It’s allowed me to see my subjects in a new way and I have become a bit obsessed with this lens. Lensbaby is not only a company that produces fantastic products, they are a company with integrity and genuinely cares about their customer’s satisfaction and experience with them.
I have only had this lens a short time and have not fully got the hang of it yet. However, I think I am really going to enjoy using it—especially with flowers.
Adore this lens. Well made. Stretches the boundless boundaries of creativity.
Still getting use to it, and getting it figured out.
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.
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.
I am absolutely loving this lens. It is so easy to use and the creative bokeh it provides adds magic to my images. And, the accompanying crystal is super fun to play with.
Since I have not received this yet- cant tell ya!
I had purchased the original Pro lens that had the interchangeable apertures. Unfortunately, it was stolen along with all of my gear. Once my insurance cleared, I purchased the Composer Pro II w/ Sweet 50. So far, I have loved it. I find it much easier to find the focus on this one and love the solid build. Thanks Lens Baby for a beautiful lens with which to be creative.
Looking for something new in my photographic journey, I decided to try a Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Sweet 50. After 40 years of make images, this lens has made me slow down and think about the images I am making. Looking forward to getting a Velvet lens to use in my portrait work.
The Lensbaby gives you unique ability to pinpoint your focal point while blowing out the peripherals. It works flawlessly with my Sony A9R. I was impressed with the quality of the optics and the glass. I'd recommend it for new photographers to gain a better understanding of what's happening inside their main lenses.
