Lensbaby has released a new Edge 35mm wide-angle tilt lens that works together with the Lensbaby composer Pro or Composer Pro II. It’s a full frame lens and will be available in multiple mounts including Sony E-mount, it will also work on Sony APS-C cameras like the new Sony a6400.
The lens features an aperture range of F3.5-F22 and a minimum focusing distance of 18cm / 7in. It has an eight blade aperture diaphragm and can tilt 15 degrees.
Here’s a short promo video from LensBaby:
The Composer Pro II swivels and tilts on a smooth metal ball and socket design, providing a fast and intuitive way to switch between traditional straight lens photos and tilt photography,’ says Lensbaby in the press release. ‘Tilting the lens up or down results in a horizontal slice of focus; left or right a vertical slice; diagonally for a diagonal slice. After setting the tilt, rotating the focus ring moves that slice of focus through the image, from one side of the frame to the other.
