Lensbaby Sweet 50 Overview

Draw more attention to your subject with a circular spot of focus surrounded by a beautifully blurred background by using the Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Sweet 50 Optic, available here with a Canon EF 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 upon 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 Sweet 50, which offers a normal perspective on full-frame cameras. This curved field optic differs from your standard lens by creating a spot of focus when tilted that can be manipulated in position by tilting the Composer and manipulated in size by manually changing the aperture from f/2.5 to 22. The optic also offers manual focus as close as 15" from your subject. Additionally, the Sweet 50 has a 46mm filter thread as well as an internal 12-blade diaphragm for extra 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.
  • Compatible with Lensbaby Optic Swap System.
  • The Sweet 50 Optic is a curved field of focus optic that creates a spot of focus surrounded by blur when utilized with tilt. When used straight ahead, the optic functions as a normal lens.
  • Aperture range from f/2.5 to 22.
  • By using built-in close focus function, the Sweet 50 Optic can focus as close as 15" from the subject.
  • Lens construction features two multi-coated glass elements in 1 group.
  • The Sweet 50 Optic accepts 46mm filters for additional creative shooting techniques.
  • Internal 12-blade aperture diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus elements.

It is a different way of shooting. The more I use it the better I like it.

This lens produces great effects (after you manage to get through the learning curve for focusing.) A fun product to use and reasonably priced.

I bought this lens for the special effect possibilities and the flexibility to change different focal lengths. Note: There is a learning curve to using this lens ... when it is most effective ... or not. This is my second Lensbaby lens ... the other is a Circular Fisheye ... and super fun. Lensbaby lens are very good quality, produce excellent image and low priced ... I think of them as the lens you buy AFTER you have your basic lens. Lensbaby make fun lens for creative images. There lens are manual focus only ... and you set the aperture ... therefore it requires the photographer to think ... and slow down ... and that is part of the fun in using the lens.

Safely whack your lens

If you have ever thought about lens whacking, but you think that sounds dirty, this is a much less eyebrow raise heavy way to get a similar effect. Also, your sensor won’t get a thousand dust particles stuck on it’s stupid little exposed face. You won’t be disappointed. For the price, this thing is amazing, and achieves the desired look very well!

I haven’t used it too much yet but I absolutely love my Lensbaby! Just what I was looking for.

Very cool, controllable SFX lens; good system; value for $

Having recently received the Composer Pro II with Sweet 50 Optic, I have only used it in a production situation once, and that was a low-light fast-moving event. Manually focusing in low light on moving bodies would be challenging with any lens, and of course the Lensbaby tilt system adds another dimension for the operator. Obviously, these are specialty, special effects lenses, and they're not intended for action photography, but I did manage to get several pretty cool shots with the Lensbaby (on my Sony a6500), which I look forward to working on in Lightroom. (I won't post them here because I don't have permission from the subjects.) I find the construction of the Composer II to be solid, the controls seem well-calibrated (and will take some practice to get muscle memory), and I love the look of the Sweet 50. I hope to get more optics; probably a Lensbaby Edge 35mm next, for a normal field of view on APS-C/Super35, and wide on full frame. I like that the optics can be purchased separately for relatively low cost when compared to the price of a whole new lens. I think I'll have fun with this system.

Not the results I want.

We shoot both Canon and Nikon in my house. Is it safe to assume tht the optics are interchangeable regardless of camera body mount?
Asked by: Gerald
If you have a Lensbaby lens mount designed for use with Lensbaby's Optic Swap System, and have one for each camera brand (one for Nikon, one for Canon), then yes, the Sweet 50 Optic included with the Lensbaby Composer Pro II can be interchanged between lens mounts. The current lens mounts that are compatible for use with Lensbaby's Optic Swap System would be the Lensbaby Spark, Lensbaby Straight Body, and the Lensbaby Composer Pro II lens mounts.

is it good for architecture?

is it good for architecture?
Asked by: Jacob
The Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Sweet 50 Optic for Fuji X is a creative lens designed for portraiture or creative photography usage needs. It is not designed for accuracy such as a standard tilt-shift lens. If you are looking for the control of a standard tilt-shift lens, this would not be my recommendation, but if you are looking for a creative perspective for architecture, then it may work for your planned usage.

Asked by: Maryan
As the Nikon D810 DSLR camera uses the Nikon F-mount lens mount and the Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Sweet 50 Optic for Nikon F, B&H # LELBCP250, is designed for use on the Nikon F-mount lens mount, no other accessory is needed to connect the lens to the Nikon D810 DSLR camera. It will connect directly to the lens mount on the Nikon D810 DSLR camera.

I am an Olympus Micro 4/3 shooter ... Sorry, Nikon d7200 I do not know. Call B&H ... they will know. FYI ... this lens creates fun photos but overall just okay. It works for special situations ... with part of the image in focus and part of the image out of focus. It is not your everyday lens ... but for a special look ... fun and different.
