Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Sweet 35 Optic for Nikon F
Have unprecedented precision control over the "sweet spot" of focus in your selective focus photos with the Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Sweet 35 Optic available here with a Nikon F 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 35, the widest focal length of any Lensbaby selective focus optic. 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 f/22. The optic also offers manual focus as close as 7.5" from your subject. Additionally, it has a 46mm filter thread as well as an internal 12-blade diaphragm for extra smooth out-of-focus areas.

- By using built-in close focus function, the Sweet 35 Optic can focus as close as 7.5" from the subject.

Lensbaby Sweet 50 Optic for Composer Pro
The Lensbaby Sweet 50 Optic is made for use with the Composer Pro, which can be bought separately, or used interchangeably with the Sweet 50 if you own it already with a different optic. It is a selective focus lens that uses a curved field of focus optic to create a blurred effect around the focus spot.
The 50mm focal length lens has two multi-coated glass elements in one group, and an aperture range of f/2.5 to f/22. The 12-blade internal aperture is easily controlled via a ring on the front of the optic. The sharp sweet spot of focus can be moved within the frame by tilting the Composer Pro's ball-and-socket joint. The size of the sweet spot is also controlled by changing the aperture.
Lensbaby Edge 50 Optic
Be selective with your focus with the Lensbaby Edge 50 which offers a normal angle of view with coverage for full-frame image sensors. It is compatible with the Optic Swap System and all Lensbaby lens bodies including the Composer Pro. This flat field optic differs from your standard lens by creating a slice of focus that is bordered by gradual blur created by tilting the Edge 50 Optic in the Composer Pro or Composer Pro II in conjunction with the 9-blade adjustable aperture for smooth out-of-focus areas. If used as a 50mm prime lens, images will be crisp from edge to edge. You can manually change the aperture from f/3.2 to f/22 utilizing the dial on the front of the lens. The optic also offers manual focus which, by using the close focus extension feature, can focus as close as 8" from your subject. In addition, the Edge 50 offers 46mm front threads for any filters you would like to use. Keep your lens smudge free with the included microfiber cloth and protected when stored in its hard storage case.
Lensbaby Macro Converter Extension Rings for Lensbaby
Lensbaby's Macro Converter Extension Rings for Lensbaby lets you take that Lensbaby look as close to your subject as you want--even touching it in some cases--and get a picture that's in focus. You can choose the 8mm ring, the 16mm ring (both included), or combine them for a 24mm ring, so you have plenty of control over exactly how close-up you want your photo to be.
The converters are compatible with all Lensbaby lens bodies and optics, and provide focus distances of 0" to 8.13", depending on the optic, the camera, and the converter(s) you use. The Macro Converters simply screw into the Lensbaby lens body and the optic screws into the converter. The converters are compatible with Composer, Composer Pro, Muse, Scout, Control Freak and all optics (the Fisheye Optic is only compatible with the 8mm converter, as it allows you to actually focus on a subject that the lens is touching).
