Product Highlights

  • Enhanced Ball & Socket Selective Focus
  • 12-Blade Diaphragm Adjustable Aperture

  • Pre-Installed Sweet 35 Optic

The Lensbaby Composer Pro with Sweet 35 Optic for Canon EF (EOS) is part of the Lensbaby series of SLR lenses, and offers the same spectacular special-effect results. However, the refined and enhanced Composer Pro gives you ultra-smooth focus and tilt control and will retain its position after being bent, which makes it easy to use even with one hand. Simply tilt the lens to a desired angle and then focus with a traditional barrel focusing ring.

The Sweet 35 Optic is a 35mm optic with a 12-blade diaphragm and adjustable aperture (f2.5-f/22) that gives you unprecedented precision control over your selective focus photos--just rotate the dial on the front of the optic to quickly change the size of your in-focus "sweet spot". This is the widest focal length of any Lensbaby selective focus optics--the Sweet 35 also has close-focus capabilities. The lens can be bent off-center in any direction for different results.

The Composer Pro is compatible with the Optic Swap System--a line of different "optics" that can be interchanged with the Muse and Composer versions. This provides artists with an almost unlimited variety of looks and styles to capture their unique visions.

The Composer Pro comes supplied with the Sweet 35 Optic.

No electronic communication is possible between the camera and the lens. All operation is strictly manual. Automatic light metering is possible by shooting in aperture priority mode for almost all digital and film SLR camera bodies.
12-blade diaphragm adjustable aperture.
High-quality optic with 4 multi-coated elements in 3 groups.
The Composer Pro features a unique manual focus design which requires more rotation to move the optic as you approach infinity. This makes it easier to focus on objects at intermediate and distant depths than regular manual focus lenses.
Type Manual focus, low dispersion, high refractive index, multi-coated optical glass doublet
Focal Length 35mm
Filter Size 46mm
f/Stop Range f/2.5-f/22
Groups/Elements 4 multi-coated glass elements, in three groups
Diaphragm Blades 12-blade internal aperture, controlled by a dial on the front of the optic
Minimum Focus Distance 7.5" for Sweet 35 Optic used with Composer Pro
Tilt Composer Pro: 0-17.5°

      "Artsy" lens

      I was a bit ambiguous about this 'artsy' lens to start with, but after putting a couple hundred flashes of light through it, it kind of grows on you.

      I was a bit ambiguous about this 'artsy' lens to start with, but after putting a couple hundred flashes of light through it, it kind of grows on you.

      Getting the hang of 'tweaking' the lens takes a bit practice, and in this case "Less is More'. It seems to me that 'learning the tool' is half the fun.

      Would I recommend the Lensbaby….absolutely.

      I use this for dramatic focus effects out of the camera. This is a novelty lens, something to buy when you essentially have most of the lenses you want, or don't mind spending a few bucks to get a limited-purpose tool. It permits you to play with a dynamic sweet spot, thanks to the ability of the user to change the axis of the lens with respect to the film/sensor plane. It takes some getting used to in order to get satisfactor results. Do not expect that the dynamic axis is similar to tilt shift technology. It is not. No data are passed between lens and camera; all functions must be manual and aperture information will not be saved.

              Great asset for creative use in close up and near photos - got to learn exposure and the effect of the lens angle to modify the sweet spot but quite simple - gives a new perspective on the use of blur

                    I wasn't expecting great optics but I thought there would be some limited Tilt/Swing effect. Even with the lens centered, most of the image is still out of focus. Tilting or swinging the lens just changes to a different weirdness.

                    Excellent lens for everyday photography, from close up portrait to landscape. With special effect it's a great choices for event photographer to add some nice image to the client album. Also with 2.5 aperture, you can use it for dslr video too.Strongly recomended

                          The Lensbaby does take more time to compose a shot but that's part of the fun. Yes, it does take a bit of practice to find the sweet spot but once you do, you can get some beautiful shots. I found that it helps inspire creativity, which has made me excited about shooting again. I'm a bit old school when it comes to photography so I use manual mode to shoot. I was able to get some nice shots the first time out with it but if you're not use to manual focus then it will take some practice.
                          When I received my lens I did notice that the Sweet 35 optic was backwards with the f-stops facing the opposite side so I had to take it out and put it back in the proper position. It was no big deal and I found it pretty easy to do. I mention this just in case anymore are shipped this way. Make sure your f-stops line up with the white dots on the Lensbaby body per the instructions provided.
                          If you are someone who prefers auto focus, than this is probably not the lens for you.
                          All in all I'm really happy with the Lensbaby and already want some more optics to use with it.

                            I had hesitated to purchase any Lensbaby thinking that I would tire and not be very creative with a blur in all my photos. Well it seems that I underestimated this little gizmo. I love the blur and color I get in my photos and video. The sharpness is awesome as long as you are able to remember to keep your diopter centered, remember this is a manual lens. Definitely money well spent. I am looking forward to other lenses.

                                  I've been waiting impatiently like a little kid before Christmas for this lens to arrive at home. It's a toy... It really is, but it's a great way to spark your creativity. It is a little bit harder to use than I expected. I'm probably too used to the great auto-focus provided by most lenses. But after many blurry shots, I was rewarded by some incredible images, tack sharp in the desired focus point and eerily blurry everywhere else.

                                      This is such a simple and easy to use lense. It takes a little while to get used to the focusing but once you get it its great! Its almost as if you can take a photo of anything and it turns out amazing!

                                            Solid construction. Works as one would expect it. Have to admit it will take some time to get use to it, but from what I see so far, it will produce some great and unique shots. It is a specialty lens for specific purpose, exactly why I made the purchase and I expect to have many interesting photos over the holidays as we travel the West Coast from California to Washington.

                                              I use Lensbaby for both photos and videos. It doesn't take much to get accustomed to adjusting the Sweet spot. The mechanism is smooth. When using it, you truly feel like an artist, giving you the ability to frame a shot or footage anyway you want it.

                                              Surprisingly, the macro capabilities are powerful as well.

                                              I was a bit ambiguous about this 'artsy' lens to start with, but after putting a couple hundred flashes of light through it, it kind of grows on you.

                                              Getting the hang of 'tweaking' the lens takes a bit practice, and in this case "Less is More'. It seems to me that 'learning the tool' is half the fun.

                                              Would I recommend the Lensbaby….absolutely.

                                                  This is my first Lensbaby. At first I didn't know that you could get the Composer Pro w/ the sweet 35 together. I'm having fun with it!

                                                  This lens is fantastic for surreal photography or vidography, the effect is subtle, and controllable, which allows for great ease of use, and functionality. I would completely recommend the sweet 35 optic, as opposed to the double glass optic. Regardless of the price difference what photographer in their right mind would want to take apart their lens, every time they want to adjust the aperture? Using this lens already adds another step (a enjoyable and artistic one) to the process, so it being simple and easy to use is a must; Lensbaby achieved that.

                                                      I have been wanting to try the Lensbaby Composer Pro for awhile...then decided to purchase this one w/sweet 35 Optic. Well I just LOVE IT ! I can see that it is going to take a little practice but I am already excited about the images I am getting with it.
