Olympus Patents a Lensbaby Like Tilt Focus Lens

Olympus Lens.jpgThe folks at Lensbaby are well known for their tiltable selective-focus lenses but it looks like they may have some competition in the near future. Olympus has just patented a selective-focus lens of its very own.

Of course, just because something gets patented doesn't mean it's going to get made. Still, the advantages to a company branded lens are clear. An Olympus tilt-shift would likely play nice with AF and other features of Olympus cameras. Any sort of extra control on a lens that's normally completely manual would be a boon.
