The Lensbaby Composer Pro II and the Edge 50 optic are a combination that is bound to work for landscape photographers more so than architecture shooters. Photographers that shoot buildings may want to go for something wider. It’s also fun for the portrait photographer.
and unreturnable. A waste of $400.
I have a number of other Lensbaby products but this has to be my favourite. A slice of sharp focus, surrounded by gorgeous blur...would definitely recommend to anyone...
To let in the word pro in this type of product, might set the expectations a bit too high. It's a toy.. And in that category i find it a bit expensive.The focus ring is a bit wobbly, which makes it really hard to use for video.
I battled between this and the 85 optics. Ive use the 85 and I loved it but I wanted a slightly wider feel. The 50 is a great middle but you do loose a stop of light that the 85 had (f2.8). This means I need to stop the lens one more stop after 3.5 to get a sharper image.
The Edge optics are the hardest to figure out but the results are fantastic once you work with it for a bit.
I have loved using this new lens/optic. There is a learning curve as you have to manually focus, and adjust aperature on the lens and shoot in manual mode. When using a more narrow aperature, your view is darkened so you have to trust in your light meter.
I enjoy using Lensbaby Composer Pro II. Fun to be creative and experiment with. More flexible range of angles when tilting than a dedicated tilt-shift lens but without the higher expense of a tilt-shift lens. FYI- This isn't a tilt-shift lens. There is no shifting, just a tilting.
A fun lens that can create great effects. Only downside is that the lens is not that sharp but then it is not piced as a top lens. It adds variety and interest and only your imagination limits its use.
It has no close focus ability, maybe 16", but otherwise it is pretty cool. It might do pretty good for portraits and wide landscape work.
After spending about six months using the Lensbaby Velvet 56 on my a7rii and enjoying the artistic results, I thought I'd try the Composer Pro II with the Edge 50 to obtain more in-focus results when needed.
