Key Features

  • Aperture Range: f/3.5 to f/22
  • Lensbaby Optic Swap System
  • Metal Lens Body with Tilt up to 15°

Edge 35 Optic
  • Wide-angle 35mm f/3.5 lens provides a comfortable, broad, and natural field of view.
  • Flat field rendering delivers a high degree of sharpness and, when tilted in the Composer II, a dramatic slice of focus is produced that is bordered by a smooth and even blur to isolate subjects with selective focus.
  • Besides adjusting exposure, the f/3.5 to f/22 aperture range allows you to control the size of the sweet spot of focus.
  • An eight-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth, pleasing bokeh quality.
  • Lens construction uses nine glass elements in six groups, and each of the elements are multi-coated to resist flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.
Composer Pro II
  • Micro Four Thirds lens mount.
  • Enables tilting the optic up to 15°to vary the amount and position of the slice of focus.
  • Accepts various optics from the Optic Swap System.
  • Metal body for improved durability and rigidity.

Lensbaby Edge 35 Reviews

Great creative tool

I love this lens. It's not for everyone and has its limitations. However, for certain applications and for interesting creative effects, it's absolutely wonderful.

Love the creativity

I had my eye on the Edge 35 for a while and was thrilled when they were back in stock. I love the Edge 35 highlights the subject with a slice of focus while the rest of the photo falls into a nice blur. I like how you can make that slice of focus bigger or smaller when changing the aperture. The slice of focus can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal depending on how you tilt the composer II body. It can also turn into a standard 35mm lens if you leave the composer II straight (no tilt). I am very happy with my purchase!

Beautiful lens

One thing is missing

This is my second Composer Pro II, I have owned one for another camera mount for some time. One of the advantages of the Composer Pro II is there are several optics available, each of which challenges creativity in a different way. My disappointment with this unit? The optic, which is designed to be modular, does not come with a rear lens cap. So next time I am in B&H I need to drop ten bucks for a plastic cover. Not a big deal, but I have never before purchased a lens or optic from any company, including Lensbaby, that did not come with a cover to protect the rear of the lens when not in use. Lensbaby, a company I have experienced nothing but quality from in the past, seems to assume the photographer will always leave the Edge 35 in the Composer Pro and never expand their creativity to include other optics from their collection. Don't misunderstand, this is a quality product with great creative possibilities, I just think protection for the optic should have been included.

I love this lens. It offers many different applications. The optics are good and the mechanism easy to use. I do wish they had a better locking system because it is easy to move the lens out of position when locking it in place. You also need to use both hands to do so which can at times be limiting. The lens also has a little play inside the composer pro so it can be tricky when pulling focus if using for video effects. Other than that, I find more fun opportunities to use it every time.

Affordable option, but limited due to lack of filter thread

By David

I don't know enough about these kinds of lenses to know why there is no filter thread on this. But that means that it is easier to use in still photography than video. If you need the option (and don't just want to replicate this effect in the computer) it might be handy. Just be aware of the absence of filter thread.

Yes. Works very well. I can get a nice simple tilt shift effect with this lens. I'll see if I can post images on the web page.
