Lensbaby adds the Edge 80

The Lensbaby 80 mm Edge 80 Optic is the newest addition to the Optic Swap System.

It’s compatible with the Lensbaby Composer Pro, Composer, Muse, Scout, and Control Freak.

The new optic will transform any of these bending lens bodies into a tilt lens that delivers a selective slice of sharp focus through an image.

Like the Lensbaby Sweet 35, the Edge 80 features an internal 12-blade adjustable aperture.

The Edge 80 provides a flat field of focus that, pointed straight ahead, takes photos that are sharp from edge to edge. Tilting the Edge 80 allows photographers to create vertical, horizontal and diagonal slices of focus through the image.

Objects in both the foreground and the background can be in focus within that slice.

Photographers can control the size of the slice of focus by changing the 12-blade aperture.

The Edge 80 allows photographers to change the aperture from f/2.8  through f/22, by rotating the dial on the front of the optic.

Minimum focusing distance is approximately 17 inches when the optic is extended forward in close focus mode and fully tilted.

There are five multi-coated glass elements, in four groups.

Front threads are 46 mm.

The Edge 80 is not compatible with the Composer with Tilt Transformer for Micro 4/3 and Sony NEX cameras.

The optic is not compatible with current 37 mm Lensbaby accessories.

The Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic has a suggested retail price of $299.05.
