The Lensbaby Composer Pro with Sweet 35 Optic for Sony E is part of the Lensbaby series of 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 (f/2.5-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.

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.

    Composer Pro with Sweet 35 Optic for Sony E is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Balancing focus with blur is great for artistic expression. While reviews suggested that mastering the Sweet 35 can be challenging, I decided to give this system a try. What makes this sweet is my sweet Sony A7s. With focus peaking and focus magnification, focusing the Sweet 35 is relatively easy unless it's wide open and then it's more difficult. But wide open makes the sweet spot too small in most cases. I found I could get good results almost immediately, and and shifting the sweet spot is easy as well. I'm really pleased with this experiment and plan to use the Sweet 35 a lot.... One point- the mount to the A7s is OK, but it doesn't click into position- it just gets tight. I was concerned in the beginning, but it seems to be OK. I just make it snug but not super tight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Bokeh and Blur! I just had the chance to take this out on a shoot and had a lot of fun playing with the selective focus as well as the bokeh and blur. It opens up a lot of creative possibilities. I was also blown away with the minimum focus distance. I could have gotten closer to my model, but she started laughing each time I tried. It's light, it's small, and is nice addition to my camera bag. If I had anything negative to say about this lens, it would be that it's a bit tricky to get the hang of manual focusing and changing your focus area, so you will be checking your images often at first. I'm shooting with the Sony A7II, so focus peaking and being able to zoom in on the EVF viewfinder made me take a bit more time with each image, but the end results were worth it. It's not as sharp as the normal lens that I use, but it's also 1/5 the price. It's an awesome lens if you are looking to spice up your images with a unique look without dropping a big wad of cash. It takes a while to get used to focusing and will make you slow down a bit, but if you are willing to take the time it can produce some great shots. This won't be your go-to lens, but it would be a great addition to your collection.
