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.

    Super Sweet 80 Optic

    I love the Composer system! So easy to pop off my Edge 35, and pop on the Sweet 80! Also love the top notch customer service! I messed up entering my credit points, and Craig fixed it right away! Completely loving these tools to give clients something a little different along with their regular portraits!

    Nice optic

    Enjoy this optic and find the 80mm very versatile. The focus ring is a bit choppy, however.
