  • 1Description

Create unique, stylized photographs with a slice of sharp focus surrounded by beautifully blurred imagery by using Lensbaby's Composer Pro II with Edge 50 Optic, available here with a Sony E mount. This updated tool is completely compatible with the established Optic Swap System and can use any of the numerous optics available. This version improves on the original Pro model by featuring a metal body as well as an improved tilt function that ranges from 0-15° in any direction.

Bundled with it is the Edge 50, offering a normal angle of view with coverage for full-frame image sensors. This flat field optic differs from your standard lens by creating a slice of focus when tilted that can be manipulated in position by tilting the Composer and in size by manually changing the aperture from f/3.2 to 22. The optic also offers manual focus which, by using the close focus extension feature, can focus as close as 8" from your subject. Additionally, this optic has a 46mm filter thread as well as an internal 9-blade diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus areas.

Composer Pro II features an upgraded metal body with charcoal gray accents and an improved tilt control from 0-15° in any direction.

    Lensbaby LBCP2E50X reviews

    Composer Pro II with Edge 50 Optic for Sony E is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent tool for artistic photography After spending about six months using the Lensbaby Velvet 56 on my a7rii and enjoying the artistic results, I thought I'd try the Composer Pro II with the Edge 50 to obtain more in-focus results when needed. There is definitely a steeper learning curve with the Composer Pro II and Edge 50 than the Velvet 56, especially in regards to familiarizing oneself with the placement and impact of the tilt on the focal plane. However, with time you get the hang of it, which is really a combination of tilt (for placement of the focal plane) and aperture setting (for the width of focus), compared to the Velvet 56 which is primarily aperture setting only since tilt is not a factor. The results can be quite unique and I've attached a couple examples taken during my early evaluations. These are not stunning shots, but intended to demonstrate the slice of focus one can obtain with this setup. Concerning the build of the Composer Pro II, I found that the focus barrel which extends from the body of the unit had a little too much play or wobble. After trying another unit, which had the same amount of play, and speaking directly with Lensbaby, I learned that this is inherent in the design of the CPII and something those want the Sony e-mount version will have to live with. Other than this concern, the Composer Pro II is of solid metal construction with smooth focus. The tilt ball mechanism is easy to adjust and stays in place once set. The Edge 50 optic is well constructed as well and comes with a pull-out option for macro photography, which is quite useful. Getting the optic in and out of the Composer Pro II can be a bit tricky at first, but you'll soon get the hang of it. I'm giving the Composer Pro II with Edge 50 Four Stars due to the play or wobble in the focus barrel of the Composer Pro II, but it is definitely staying in my arsenal of lenses for when I need the artistic reach it provides. I've already acquired the Sweet 35 and find it a must have too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lensbaby A fun lens that can create great effects. Only downside is that the lens is not that sharp but then it is not piced as a top lens. It adds variety and interest and only your imagination limits its use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything Lensbaby is the BOMB!!! The Edge optics are the hardest to figure out but the results are fantastic once you work with it for a bit.
