Summary: I own the lensbaby composer (& the optic that comes with it- double glass i think??) & the fisheye optic. This is a fun new addition! I prefer it over the other optics. I still have some playing around to do with it. Occasionally I think I have things focused straight on, but the area in focus turns out being more on a diagonal plane. I figure there's just a little of a learning curve though.
Very nice optic, I hesitated a bit, but totally worth it!

Summary: This is not a cheap optic, so I was a little hesitant to buy the Lens Composer + This optic. 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.
A fun and affordable way to explore tilt-shift photography

Summary: The Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic is one of Lensbaby's "swappable" optics for its line of lenses. It has a focal length of 80mm and features a 12-blade aperture with a range from f/2.8 through f/22. It can function as a regular 80mm f/2.8 lens when facing forward on your camera, but this optic's special feature is that it allows you to employ the usual Lensbaby bend and tilt to reposition your plane of focus along any point not parallel with your camera's sensor plane.
