Lensbaby Optic Swap Founders Collection for Micro Four Thirds

A comprehensive kit for the Lensbaby enthusiast, the Optic Swap Founder's Collection includes the popular Composer Pro II lens body along with four of the most-used optics by Lensbaby's founder, Craig Strong. The Composer Pro II enables the included Sweet 35, Sweet 50, Edge 35, and Edge 50 optics to be attached to Micro Four Thirds-mount cameras and also facilitates up to 15° of tilt for creative effects. Additionally, a custom Optic Swap System Case is also included, as well as a Lens Cloth.

Lensbaby Sweet 35 Optic


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".

  • 12-blade diaphragm adjustable aperture for unprecedented control over selective focus
  • High-quality optic with 4 multi-coated elements in 3 groups
  • Compatible with Lensbaby Composer, Scout, Muse, and Control Freak lens bodies. Not compatible with Composer with Tilt Transformer or current 37mm Lensbaby accessories

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 35 Optic

Characterized by its flat field design and distinct slice of focus, the Edge 35 Optic is a 35mm f/3.5 lens for the Lensbaby Optic Swap System. Designed for use with a tilting Lens Body, this optic's merits lie in its unique optical design that can render an overall sharp and clean effect or, when tilted, produce a dramatic area of focus surrounded by a smooth, blurred border. The aperture range helps to control the slice of focus and eight diaphragm blades contribute to a smooth bokeh quality to suit the selective focus look. Additionally, the lens construction uses nine elements in six groups, and each of the glass elements is multi-coated to resist flare and ghosting for contrast-rich, color-accurate images.

  • Part of the Lensbaby Optic Swap System, this optic requires an additional Lensbaby Lens Body, such as the Composer or Composer II, for use.
  • Wide-angle 35mm f/3.5 lens provides a comfortable, broad, and natural field of view.
  • Flat field rendering delivers a high degree of sharpness and, when tilted in the Composer, a dramatic slice of focus is produced that is bordered by a smooth and even blur to isolate subjects with selective focus.
  • Besides adjusting exposure, the f/3.5 to f/22 aperture range allows you to control the width of the slice of focus.
  • Offers a minimum focusing distance of 7" along with a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:5 to suit working with close-up subjects.
  • An eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth, pleasing bokeh quality.
  • Lens construction uses nine glass elements in six groups, and each of the elements are multi-coated to resist flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.

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 Optic Swap System Case (Small)

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.
