Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic

Available Today

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 renting it separately for existing Lensbaby Composer Pro owners and renters of our other Lensbaby Composer Pro units.
  • 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-friendly 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.

This is just the Edge 80 Optic itself! You will also need a compatible Lensbaby lens unit. If you want the both the Edge 80 optic and Composer Pro lens, check our Works Well With tab.

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 f2.8! As designed, once you start tilting, you start getting the “Lensbaby effect”. It has a pretty good build as well, with a 4 group / 5 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!
