The Lensbaby Composer Pro is a welcomed upgrade from the Lensbaby Muse. Not that there is anything wrong with the Muse but you get much more control with the Composer Pro. The build quality of the metal design feels solid, moves smoothly and is easy to lock in place.
The Sweet 35 has 12 aperture blades and an aperture ring on the optic so it’s just a few clicks from f2.8 to f22. This works much better than the manual drop in aperture rings on other Lensbaby optics. I would love to see more optics in their line that used this design. I also purcahsed their new Macro Converter set that comes with one 8mm converter and one 16mm converter that can be stacked to 24mm’s.
I haven’t had this lens long but I have really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to getting familiar with this lens. I know it's easy to get selective focus effects in Photoshop but isn’t it more fun to be shooting rather than editing.
