I’ve had the Lensbaby Edge 35 Optic for about a week now. It’s a bit of a beast, in that I have to really work to learn how to use it. I’m used to slapping a new optic into my Lensbaby Composer and being ready to go with a shallow learning curve. Not so with the Edge 35.
What is interesting is that the optic works very well as a prime lense. When the composer is straight ahead, it’s like shooting with a nice, crisp 35mm lense.
It’s a bit difficult to get a good slice with extension tubes, but I intend to keep experimenting!
