In Review

"Not only is the Trio 28 lightweight and compact, the most obvious reason for using it for travel is how much punch you get out of 1 piece!"

Rachel Shomsky


"I love being able to fade into the environment shooting the Trio. It’s weightless, perfectly wide & provides infinite capabilities with its three pieces of pristine glass. This lens is now a staple in my bag."

Lesley Martin


"I found that what I captured with Trio on that trip really made me happy. Obviously I love the look this lens creates, but I also find that I am looking at things a bit differently, with a more creative eye."

    This is the lens I have been looking for.

    There is nothing I don't love about the Trio28. It has opened my mind creatively and also gave me the inspiration and enthusiasm to learn a manual lens. It's tricky but so worth it, I couldn't be happier with my purchase. It came very quickly, nice packaging and Lensbaby has been amazing. I will be back for more lenses, thank you!

    Stays on my canon m6 mkii

    I LOVE this lens and the versatility and convenience of having 3 in 1! This lens is my go to and stays on my camera! I wish I has bought one ! If you’re looking to add a creative edge without fidgeting around with many gadgets this should be your next lens purchase!!! Did I mention the price point is also a no brained?! You will not be disappointed. Remember this is a manual focusing lens but with a fixed aperture of 3.5, it’s not hard to get solid sweet spots and sharpness while still keeping all the fun blur! If you’re into free lensing and manually adding objects into the frame for unique shots you’ll fall in love with the light weight gem

    Fun and useful product

    Neat accessory attachment gives you a few different looks in one. I prefer the "sweet" the best. The lensbaby effect is not as strong as some of the other attachments but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Very easy to use versus some of the other lensbabys. The center of frame is very sharp... optic is pretty decent. I sometimes like to shoot in an "in between" setting where you get really cool double exposure / lensbaby effects which are quite unique. The key with this lens as well as all the lensbabys is learning to feel when it is appropriate to use them where they add something to your subject versus just being a gimmicky effect that ruins an image. When used appropriately, they are a great tool.

    Lensbaby Trio 28 on an Olympus Pen 8

    Totally cool! Love learning to use manual focus too and love that you get three different lens effects in one lens!
