    Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic
    Lensbaby is a company that's resolutely pursued its own path since it first started making 'selective focus' optics for SLRs. Its lenses offer a distinctive low-fi aesthetic, with a 'sweet spot' of sharp focus that can be moved around the frame. The Edge 80 is, essentially, an 80mm F2.8 lens that has a bayonet mount at the back to fit into Lensbaby's body units. Optically it's a 5-element, 4-group design with a built-in 12-blade circular diaphragm that stops down to F22. It has one notable trick - an integrated 'extension tube' so you can pull the lens forward in its mount for closer focusing down to about 48cm / 19".

    Lensbaby Edge 80 optic is specifically designed to give you a slice of sharp focus, surrounded by soft blur. The size of the in-focus region varies depending on the aperture and the location of it can be modified by the degree and direction of tilt. When tilted, Edge 80 delivers a slice of tack sharp focus through the image, bordered by a soft blur. When pointed straight ahead, Edge 80 can be used like a straight lens. Edge 80 can also be used to great effect in any situation that lends itself to selective focus, from food photography to giving landscapes a “miniature” appearance.

    Tilt horizontally, vertically, or diagonally to place your slice of focus within the image. Rotate the aperture dial on the front of the optic to change the width of your slice of focus. Rotate the focus ring to adjust your focus along the image plane. The Edge 80 also features a special close-focus function. Extend the front of the optic to focus as close as 17” away from your subject. Unlike conventional tilt lenses, which offer accurate control over the lens movements, Lensbaby's lens bodies all use completely 'free' movements. This means there's no way of tilting the lens in a completely defined direction - vertical or horizontal, for example. This reflects the fact that it's intended mainly for selective focus or 'miniature effect' photography, highlighting key elements of the image and blurring away the rest.
