For the creative close-up shooter, the Lensbaby Optic Swap Macro Collection includes the popular Composer Pro II lens body along with a pair of optics and some close-up lenses for a unique take on macro imagery. The Composer Pro II enables the included Sweet 80 and Edge 80 optics to be attached to Sony E-mount cameras and also facilitates up to 15° of tilt for creative effects. Complementing these lenses is the Macro Filter Kit, which includes three close-up lenses for working at greater than a 1:1 maximum magnification. Additionally, a custom Optic Swap System Case is also included, as well as a Lens Cloth.
Characterized by its distinct sweet spot of focus, the Sweet 80 Optic is an 80mm f/2.8 lens for the Lensbaby Optic Swap System. Designed for use with a tilting Lens Body, this optic's merits lie in its curved field of focus that allows you to place the area of sharp focus anywhere within the image frame and have the rest of the image shrouded in a smooth, ethereal blur. The aperture range helps to control the size of sweet spot of focus and 12 diaphragm blades contribute to a smooth bokeh quality to suit the selective focus look. Additionally, the lens construction uses four elements in two groups, and each of the glass elements are multi-coated to resist flare and ghosting for contrast-rich, color-accurate images.
The Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic is an 80mm f/2.8-22 flat field optic with an adjustable 12-blade aperture. This optic is specifically designed to be used in conjunction with a Lensbaby lens body to give you a slice of sharp focus, surrounded by soft blur. The size of the in-focus region varies depending on the aperture and the location of it can be modified by the degree and direction of tilt. The selective focus effect produced is especially desirable for close-up photography, as this lens can focus as close as 17" / 43.2cm when fully extended.
This optic is composed of 5 multi-coated glass elements within 4 groups and the 12 rounded aperture blades produce an extremely smooth bokeh. It is compatible with the Lensbaby Composer Pro, Composer, Muse, Scout, and Control Freak lens bodies (Not compatible with the Composer with Tilt Transformer for Micro Four Thirds and Sony NEX cameras).
A simple and convenient method for shortening your minimum focusing distance and minimum working distance, this Macro Filter Kit from Lensbaby fits lenses with 46mm filter threads, and enables you to photograph close-up subjects more effectively. This kit is comprised of +1, +2, and +4 dioptric strength lenses, and each of the lenses can be used to vary the degree of how much the minimum focusing distance of the lens is reduced. Additionally, front 46mm filter threads also allow the close-up lenses to be combined for even greater magnifications.
Perfect for the Lensbaby enthusiast, this Optic Swap System Case is dedicated to carrying and protecting an array of lens bodies and optics, such as the Composer, Composer Pro, Composer Pro II, Spark, Fixed Body, Muse bodies, and all optics types, such as the Edge and Sweet variants.
The small version of the case is designed to hold up to one lens body with an installed optic, along with three additional optics. Alternatively, the case can also hold up to four optics with no lens bodies. The case itself is a hardshell case with a nylon wrap and has a custom insert for the lens bodies and optics, along with a firm eggcrate foam lining. The case has a zippered closure and a nylon strap handle with a rubber grip.
