Lensbaby has released Edge 35mm Optic, a new wide angle tilt lens for its Optic Swap system.

The lens, which works in conjunction with the Lensbaby composer Pro or Composer Pro II, can be mounted to Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony E, Fuji X and Micro Four-Third systems. It is the third selective focus lens in Lensbaby’s Optic Swap lineup, rounding out the existing 50mm and 80mm options.

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. Lensbaby doesn’t have specific dimensions or weight available at this time.

‘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.’

The Edge 35mm Optic is available for pre-order alone for $249.95 or as a kit with the Composer Pro II for $449.95. The first lenses and kits will start shipping in early April.
