Lensbaby 0.42x Super Wide Lens

Lensbaby announced a new 0.42x Super Wide Lens for use with their new line of selective focus lenses – The  Composer, The Muse, The Control Freak and their companion Lensbaby Optic Swap System consisting of Double Glass, Single Glass, Plastic, and Pinhole/Zone plate interchangeable optics.  The .42x Super Wide lens has optics that are optimized for use with Lensbaby lenses, eliminating the diffusion and reducing the vignetting that occur when industry standard wide angle conversion lenses are used with a Lensbaby lens.

Like the current line of Lensbaby accessory lenses (which includes a 1.6x telephoto, 0.6x wide angle, and +4 and +10 macro filters), the 0.42x Super Wide Lens simply screws onto the front of any Lensbaby lens via its standard 37mm screw thread. The 0.42x Super Wide Lens converts Lensbaby optics from a 50mm focal length to an ultra-wide 21mm focal length. It retails for $79.95.

All Lensbaby lenses provide photographers with a new way to control depth of field by bringing one area of a photo into sharpest focus with that Sweet Spot surrounded by gradually increasing blur. By bending the Lensbaby lens, the photographer moves the sharp area around the photo for customized creative effects.

Three new Lensbaby lenses – The Composer, The Muse and The Control Freak, – make up the line of Lensbaby SLR lenses. Each features the new Lensbaby Optic Swap system.  With the Composer, Lensbaby introduced a completely new lens, based on a ball and socket configuration that delivers smooth selective focus photography with unparalleled ease of use and greater precision.  The new Composer retains its position after being bent and is easy to use.  The Composer stays in the desired bent position without requiring a locking mechanism and is compatible with the new Lensbaby Optic Swap System.
