Lensbaby has released their new product name Edge 80 Optic. This product is the newest addition to its Optic Swap System. This new optic is compatible with the Lensbaby Composer Pro, Composer, Muse, Scout and Control Freak and will transform any of these bending lens bodies into a tilt lens that delivers a selective slice of sharp focus through an image. Many of professional photographer have already praised of this product.
Like other tilt lenses, the Edge 80 Optic can be used to create images with a slice of sharp focus surrounded by blur. Experiment with the Edge 80 Optic Simulator to get a better understanding of how aperture, tilt and focus work together to create a slice of focus through an image.
The direction in which the lens is tilted determines the orientation of the slice of focus. When pointed straight ahead, Edge 80 will produce an image with a flat field of focus, much like a standard lens.
Kathleen Clemons, Nature Photographer & Workshop Instructor said “Being able to compose with a single slice of focus across an image opens up many new possibilities in my photographs. The 80mm focal length is a great fit for the subjects I photograph most.”
Holli True, Senior Portrait Photographer said “I am a huge fan of my Composer Pro with
Sweet 35. However, after using Edge 80, it will likely become my absolute go-to lens.”

Portland, OR – EMBARGOED for February, 14, 2012 @ 9AM EST – Lensbaby, announces today the availability of its 80mm Edge 80 Optic, the newest addition to its Optic Swap System. This new optic is compatible with the Lensbaby Composer Pro, Composer, Muse, Scout and Control Freak, and 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 Optic, the Edge 80 features Lensbaby’s internal 12-blade adjustable aperture.
“The Edge 80 Optic allows photographers to create images with quality that is on-par with some of the best lenses I’ve ever used. Like a great lens mounted on a view camera bellows, you can make spectacular ‘straight’ photos with the Edge 80 pointed straight ahead and then, when you want a different look altogether, fluidly tilt the lens to create a razor sharp slice of selective focus through your image,” said Craig Strong, Lensbaby President and Co-Founder.
