The Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic

The Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic is part of the company’s Optic Swap system designed for their Composer Pro. Key features include:

Add-On for Existing Users. This is just the Edge 80 Optic. We’re selling it separately for existing Lensbaby Composer Pro owners or future owners.

80mm Flat-Field Focus Optic. This normal/short tele focal range optic uses a flat field of focus to create a line/slice of focus across the frame that is selected by tilting the Composer Pro’s ball-and-socket joint. The “slice of focus” size can also be controlled by adjusting aperture, allowing simple false-miniature images.

F/2.8 Maximum Aperture. The fast f/2.8 aperture enables decent low-light performance. The four group / five multi-coated element optical formula produces surprisingly good image quality for a Lensbaby and provides a much cost-friendlier option than a tilt-shift lens. Additionally, the 12-blade internal aperture produces a circular aperture at all stops that not even some pro lenses 25x more expensive feature.

Tim's Take

For those who have concern about the optical quality of the Edge 80, you’ll be quite surprised! If perfectly centered, the Edge 80 provides great corner to corner sharpness, even at f/2.8! As designed, once you start tilting, you start getting the “Lensbaby effect." It has a pretty good build as well, with a four group / five multi-coated glass element design. Top it off with its 12 rounded aperture blades that best some “pro” designated lenses, and you’ve got a very fun specialty lens!
