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.

Slice of Focus

Draw the viewer’s eye, highlight details in the foreground & background and blur out distractions.

    I love living on the Edge

    I think the edge effect Lens optics are currently my favorite. I love how they allow me to use selective focus. The edge 80 is definitely a great optic. I am so glad I added it to my collections.

    Standard and macro all in one!

    I love the versatility of this lens, with a pop I can go from a regular lens to a bit of macro. This is easily one of my favorites in my Lensbaby collection.

    Magical Optic

    This lens is pure magic. No piece of equipment has ever made me feel the way this optic has. When I took my first shot my eyes filled up with tears and my stomach with butterflies, because the beauty of the photograph was beyond my imagination. I am a fine art lifestyle and portrait photographer and in this lens, I feel, I have found the ONE. The areas in focus are crisp sharp and full of fine details, and the smoothness of the blur is just out of this world. With this lens you can truly transform the most ordinary subject into extraordinary. This is my 3rd Lensbaby and instantly it has become my favourite. I also must mention how impressed I am with the quality of customer service. My order got dispatched on the same day when it was placed, and it reached me just within 4 days! I am based in London, so the package had a long way to travel, and still, it arrived super quick. My lens was beautifully and safely packed with little extra gifts that really warmed my heart. Thank you Lensbaby! Noa @noa_creations

    Lensbaby Mindset

    The photographer that starts a session with ANY Lensbaby glass understands that there are no rules. There are no boundaries or preconceptions that should “dictate” how any artistic work should be made to look. More importantly, embracing an organic method to isolate the message takes courage and true artistic forethought. You can’t go back to “fix” anything. The risks are huge…the results are huge as well. I recently began using the Edge 80 with my composer and found it to be yet another wonderfully creative optic by LB. To use this glass effectively, I continually am thinking of the focal plane and how a wide ap slice may enhance the artistic message. The possibilities go far beyond simply creating a “miniature” effect. Compressing elements on the slant also means achieving focus on the slant as well, so even with a wide open aperture, there is depth, that would not be doable with a flat lens. Love it. Can’t wait to get out with it again.
