Lensbaby just unveiled a brand new Optic for its selective focus lens system. Called the Edge 80 Optic, this 80mm optic is compatible with Lensbaby Composer Pro, Composer, Muse, Scout and Control Freak.
The Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic ($300) is designed to transform Lensbaby’s bending lens bodies into an 80mm tilt-shift lens that creates a selective slice of sharp focus through a photo. Like the Lensbaby Sweet 35 Optic, the Edge 80 features Lensbaby’s internal 12-blade adjustable aperture.
