    So sweet!

    It definitely is an interesting lens. It is challenging especially to focus through a viewfinder. It will take time to really master the lens. But the outcome is amazing.

    A great way to add interest to your work

    I love how the sweet spot of focus can be moved exactly where I want it in the frame. And focusing is remarkably easy, considering it's a manual focus lens. There is a bit of a learning curve, but if you take your time it will soon become second nature.

    Right out of the box this optic has my creative juices flowing. Crisp focus point and buttery blur. What's not to love?

    Great Optic

    I like that I can set the lens aperture by rotating the top ring. Sweet 50 is a good all around focal length for me. I used it in my Composer that I bought many years ago.

    Sweet Sweet 50

    I absolutely love the Sweet 50, along with my other babies... but especially paired with the 8mm macro converter... it brings my subject in just enough to get all the details and all the dreaminess it creates!!

    I absolutely love my Lensbaby Sweet 50 (actually all my lensbabies) but I love it even more when I add my 8mm macro converter. It allows me to get to the perfect distance to get all the details and that dreamy goodness!!!

    Outstanding Optic!

    I am a huge Lensbaby enthusiast. I use the Sweet 50 in both my Lensbaby Scout and my Composer Pro. There is a learning curve, but it doesn't take long. It is fun even while learning, and the effects are stunning. I highly recommend this optic.
