Lensbaby's Sweet 35 Optic is a 35mm optic with a 12-blade diaphragm and adjustable aperture (f2.5-f/22) that gives you unprecedented precision control over the "sweet spot" of focus in your selective focus photos. This is the widest focal length of any Lensbaby selective focus optics--the Sweet 35 also has close-focus capabilities. It's part of the Lensbaby Optic Swap System. Use it with the Lensbaby Composer, Scout, Muse, or Control Freak lens body--just rotate the dial on the front of the optic to quickly change the size of your in-focus "sweet spot".

Lensbaby LBO35 reviews

Sweet 35 Optic is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting but not much more I recently purchased a Lensbaby so that I could experiment with alternative types of portraiture, and found the optics that game with it to be acceptable but not much more than that. With this optic, the lensbaby has become a reasonable option for me (when compared with lenses like the Sigma 50 1.4 and the Nikkor 35 2.0) The quality of the image and the convenience of not aperture disks make this a good lens for doing some selective focus work. It in no way will replace tilt-shift lenses (I work with the Nikkor 85 pc-e usually) but it does have its own niche. If you want to explore the realm of selective focus and maintain some image quality, I would recommend this optic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More f Stop Disks with this baby Nice addition to the optic swap system. Very easy to use with the on board f stop adjustment. Dial in the f stop,,,tilt to place the sweet spot,,,focus and shoot. I also find the 35mm focal length to be pretty useful for many photo opps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient I've been using the Lensbaby system with my Panasonic 4/3 cameras for 4 or 5 years.� I started with the Composer Pro with the Double Glass Optic and have added the Fisheye and some other optics.� For me the best thing about the Sweet 35 is the adjustable aperture.� The addition of adjustable aperture to the tilting lens mount is an enormous improvement over the aperture discs.� The image quality of the Sweet 35 is very good.� My only complaint with Lensbaby is that they don't make make an adjustable aperture optic that is wide angle for the 4/3 format.� For my 4/3 system, the Sweet 35 is the 35mm equivalent of a 70mm lens.� But for that, I would rate this product as 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ultimate in lensbaby lenses. This is such a great addition to my lens baby composer. I find that I am using this more in the recent days for its creamy effect. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an additional effect for the bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile - but.... This product eliminates the awkward changing of f-stop discs. The downside is that it does not accept accessories such as wide angle or telephoto lenses so one has to swap the optic out for one that does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet Sweet 35 I had used the Wide and Telephoto optics before and the Sweet 35 is a welcome addition. No more fishing or insert disks for f stops. A built in apperature is a very welcome addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lensbaby did it again! This is the coolest Lensbaby product to date in my opinion! I like the ability to be able to change the aperture on the fly and in combinination with the composer pro or muse, this lens optic is a must have for anyone who doesn't want to spend a ton to get the tilt-shift look with great image quality. This lens is so much fun! The 12 blade aperture creates amazingly smooth bokeh too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthwhile addition if a Lensbaby fan We love our Lensbabies. But it's not super convenient to change apertures with magnets and rings. This is a useful addition/correction to an existing set of lenses. I imagine that in the future the next phase will be for them to include this within the LB itself...but for now and for people who already own a Composer, it's ideal
