Lensbabies Macro Lens Kit launched - A set of macro lenses for use with its selective focus SLR camera lenses, Lensbaby 2.0 and the Original Lensbaby. The macro set consists of one +4 and one +10 macro lens that can be mounted to the front of the Lensbaby lens, allowing photographers to focusing in on minute details with eye popping Lensbaby effects.
A Lensbaby without a macro lens has a minimum focus of 16 inches. With the +4 lens attached the focus range is from 6 to 13. With the +10 macro lens attached, the focus range is from 3.5 to 5. With the +4 and the +10 stacked on each other and mounted to the front of a Lensbaby, focus range is 2 to 3.
We think these macro lenses will entrance anyone who loves Lensbaby photography or macro photography. You can lie down like a kid in your backyard and capture bugs running around the jungle of your garden. Said Lensbaby Co-CEO Craig Strong. Actually getting an in focus Lensbaby macro shot of a bug running around is a bit of a trick though, given the very shallow depth of focus. . . . but it can be done and the pursuit is fun!
