Smooth Blur and Bokeh

"This optic is so nice! I fell in love with the sweet spot optics when I purchased the Sol 45, but I feel like this focal length is probably the best one of them all! Wide open, the lens flares beautifully in direct light, and the blur and bokeh are so smooth. There is a “macro” feature on this optic too, making it incredibly versatile!"

Phenomenal Experience

"My overall experience using the Sweet 80 has been phenomenal. Having used all the other sweet optics, this lens is fast becoming my favorite of them. I love the compression of the longer focal length and the built in close up function. Using this lens on a crop sensor camera has also been quite beneficial as it makes the 80 focal length 1.6x longer, so roughly 130mm.I have enjoyed the learning curve of this, and every Lensbaby lens. Highly recommend it."

Creative Versatility

"The lens has so much creative versatility, I’m already planning to shoot on location with it. I WANT to put it on my camera and go on an adventure to see what it unearths. There is no question that I am going to have to use it a LOT."
