Sometimes an old fashioned recipe and the latest modern technology don’t mix: zap-blasting your grandmother’s vegetable soup ingredients in a 10,000-watt microwave instead of slowly simmering them for six hours, for example. But other times strange bedfellows bring out the best in each other.
Overall, I would say this is a great lens… for specific purposes. You should get it only if you want a specific style of shot. I think it’s a great item to keep in the camera bag, but you should only pull it out when you really need it.
The Lensbaby Composer pro/Sweet 50 is a tool that can push portrait appeal up a notch. Like everyone says, it takes a little practice and experimentation. There's a learning curve to placing the "sweet spot" and getting the optics in and out of the composer, but neither of these are show-stoppers.
Inexpensive, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Limited Application, Steep Learning Curve
Light meter issuesCould be difficult to focus if you don't understand this opticNot very sharp even with pro lighting setupCan create nice bokeh and interesting look
From the perspective of a novice photographer taking pictures for fun, this is a great product. If you don't have a huge budget for a wide variety of lenses, this lens will open up whole new ways to view your world. The Sweet 35 provides a way to creatively provide flow to your photographs.
My daughter tried it but did not like the blurry effects and when we tried to return it they were rude and said the restocking would be be 15 to 25 %.
