The usual Lensbaby lens tilt allows you to place the point of focus (with varying diffusion all around that point) but did not allow you to change the plane of focus itself. With this optic you can put a "slice of focus" through your image in creative ways. For example, you can highlight a certain aspect of the photo (such as producing a portrait where the eyes are in sharpest focus and everything else is softly blurred), or you can create the "false miniature" effect where the objects photographed take on the appearance of miniature scale models. The optic also has a close focus mode that will allow a close focus distance of 17".
There is a bit of learning curve for this optic. Expect to play around for bit before you get the hang of it. There are some good video tutorials on the Lensbaby site. I included a couple of example photos with this review.
You don't need to swap lenses to get back to "normal." As I mentioned earlier, the Edge 80 behaves like a normal 80mm lens when you aren't employing any of its tilt features. The aperture ring on the optic adjusts smoothly, and focusing and tilt occurs on the lens body itself. The shift from regular focus mode to close focus mode is a little tight -- you have to firmly pull the front edge of the optic outward.Read more ›
Remember you cannot use this optic alone, you will need to buy the Composer Lens Baby first.
So the total investment cost me around 700 dollars (bought 2 optics + Composer Pro).
For a manual focus and something that to some might feel like "toy lens", it is very expensive.
After receiving the lens and trying out, I am satisfied with the purchase. The optic feels solid. It is the best lens baby optic. The bokeh and tilt-shift effects are very fun to play with, and it does take amazing sharp photos. I mount on a nikon D800, and I can create many creative photos. If you want to expand your photo creativity, I definitely recommend this lens.
