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.

Sweet Spot

Control the size of your sweet spot of focus by simply adjusting the aperture.

    One of my favorite optics...

    I am a huge Lensbaby fan, and the Sweet 35 is one of my favorite optics. I use it in my Composer Pro and in my Scout and is easy to learn to use. It is very sharp in the center with beautiful blurring effects around it.

    Very unique!

    I've been using this for more than a year now and I've been loving this! I'm a videographer and i love how you good people make the ballhead-like tilting smooth for me to move it while recording:) but there is one thing that is really killing me to know, why are there no fast aperture optics? F1.4 maybe? Because i really love the image when there are so much bokeh stacking on one side and on the other side the bokeh splatter from the sweetspot focused part, but, in a lot of time the bokeh becomes like an arrow.. i think, what wonderful pictures it would be if it was oval like usual.. because sometimes getting closer to the subject to make it oval is not an option:'( i suspect that the bigger apertures would make the sweet spot too small and thus makes the lens unusable at that aperture but i really am hoping that I'm wrong.. sorry for the long message in a review section! I hope you guys have a very nice day:D
