Lensbaby Edge 50 Overview

Create unique, stylized photographs with a slice of sharp focus surrounded by beautifully blurred imagery by using Lensbaby's Composer Pro II with Edge 50 Optic, available here with a Nikon F mount. This updated tool is completely compatible with the established Optic Swap System and can use any of the numerous optics available. This version improves on the original Pro model by featuring a metal body as well as an improved tilt function that ranges from 0-15° in any direction.

Bundled with it is the Edge 50, offering a normal angle of view with coverage for full-frame image sensors. This flat field optic differs from your standard lens by creating a slice of focus when tilted that can be manipulated in position by tilting the Composer and in size by manually changing the aperture from f/3.2 to 22. The optic also offers manual focus which, by using the close focus extension feature, can focus as close as 8" from your subject. Additionally, this optic has a 46mm filter thread as well as an internal 9-blade diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus areas.

Item arrived like the box been opened and repackaged. But overall, seemed like a great lens. Ordered a separate 35mm optic with a filter adapter. 5 out of 5 for build and usability.

Love it

I have a number of other Lensbaby products but this has to be my favourite. A slice of sharp focus, surrounded by gorgeous blur...would definitely recommend to anyone...

Definetly not a PRO-product, but super fun and educational

To let in the word pro in this type of product, might set the expectations a bit too high. It's a toy.. And in that category i find it a bit expensive. The focus ring is a bit wobbly, which makes it really hard to use for video. The tilt ball has a wobbly feel to it as well, but i would always keep that fixed in a video situation. When that is said, it is a super fun toy, that challenges your manual skills and support your understanding of photography. For photo it is a cool little creative tool that actually can make the shot of the day when mounted on the camera. The last star would have been given, if the last built quality was there, so the price was matching expectations.

The Edge optics are the hardest to figure out but the results are fantastic once you work with it for a bit.

fun lens with a learning curv

I have loved using this new lens/optic. There is a learning curve as you have to manually focus, and adjust aperature on the lens and shoot in manual mode. When using a more narrow aperature, your view is darkened so you have to trust in your light meter. This could be frustrating to someone new to manual shooting. A new challenge is just what I needed...The effects are beautiful, similar to free-lensing without having to worry about too much light spilling in between the lens and camera. Now that I am getting better at using the lens, making beautiful images with it and using it intently and thoughtfully are the challenges. I wanted a tilt-shift lens but couldn't justify the expense on something that wasn't 100% necessary for my business. Though different than a tilt shift lens, this offers a different perspective than a regular lens and it is just what I was looking for.

Composer Pro II

I enjoy using Lensbaby Composer Pro II. Fun to be creative and experiment with. More flexible range of angles when tilting than a dedicated tilt-shift lens but without the higher expense of a tilt-shift lens. FYI- This isn't a tilt-shift lens. There is no shifting, just a tilting. Macro pull out is a plus.

Very creative lens

question

I have the composer pro ii in both canon and fuji mounts, and in both the lens is very hard to tilt even with the ring loosened. is this normal?
Asked by: Christie
Hi Christie. I just tested my composer pro II to see if i had the same problem - And i don't! What i did noticed though, is that the ring has an opposite logic when tightening and loosening, so have you tried max it the other way? Can you move it when the ring is approx. in the middle? In my opinion you should be able to, without being worried about breaking something.Hope you find a solution :)
