23 February 2023

Lensbaby has announced the Double Glass II optic, a new-and-improved version of one of the earliest in Lensbaby's Optic Swap System. The new module is compatible with all current and legacy Optic Swap lens bodies.


Highlights of the new module include these improvements:

  • All metal construction
  • 12-blade manually adjustable internal aperture
  • Aperture Range: f2.5 to f22
  • Nine specialty drop-in magnetic aperture disks
  • Compatible with all Optic Swap lens bodies
  • Compatible with the Optic Swap 46mm Macro Filter Kit and Macro Converters


Specifications for the module include:

Mount Optic Swap Module
Focal Length 50mm
Aperture f2.5 to f22
12 diaphragm blades
Minimum Focus 15 inches
Optical Design 2 elements in 1 group
Autofocus No
Image Stabilization No
Filter Thread 46mm
Dimensions 3 x 3 inches

The aperture disks include a five pointed star, a heart and another seven of the nine artistically-designed and shaped drop-in apertures developed by visual artists in the Lensbaby community

Each one modifies the out of focus areas of the image to add an effect. When images shot with these uniquely shaped drop-in apertures contain out of focus points of light those points of light are rendered in the shape of the aperture.


Lensbaby said the Double Glass II optic is available now for $199.95 from Lensbaby directly or B&H.
