The Lensbaby Edge 80 is a flat field of focus 80mm F2.8 optic with a similar design to the Sweet 35. Like the Sweet 35 the Edge 80 has 12 aperture blades but adds a built-in extension tube that you can pull forward for closer shots. The Edge 80 also works well as a regular lens when centered and pointed straight.

I really like what Lensbaby has done with the new designs of their last two optics the Sweet 35 and Edge 80. I'm certainly not missing the drop in aperture rings of their earlier optics. Some say that Lensbaby lenses are gimmicky and I could not disagree more. We all know you can get the similar effects in photoshop but it is so much more satisfying getting it in camera. Lensbaby is on a role and I believe this is their best optic to date. I look forward to seeing what they do next.
