คมเลนส์ส่องพระประจำวันวันเสาร์ที่27ก.พ.2559

This is the headline of what is a regular column in KomChadLeuk on-line.

I assume it is supposed to mean something like 'New Focus', with เลนส์ being the load word 'lens' from English.

But it still strikes me as a weird construction, especially given that the word โฟกัส is already in use.

Can anyone enlighten me?

รวบมือค้อนฆ่าทุบหัวลูกเสี่ยรับเหมา สารภาพเจอภาพ

บาดใจเห็นคนตายเดินควงมากับแฟนสาวของตังเองฟิวส์ขาด

Trying to capture tabloid headline writing style, came up with this:

Hammer killer arrested! Bashed in skull of wealthy construction contractor's son! Confesses after seeing photos! Incensed at seeing girlfriend with another guy - blows a fuse!

It's about an amulet contest between well known amulet makers so translating the first 3 words -sharp- lens-shining light on, illuminating , I think we could translate it as 'all eyes on'  Saturday's regular amulet contest, perhaps the writer is playing with the words for the judges must use magnifying glasses to peer carefully at the amulets,and in the next phrase the writer mentions the names of the well known amulet makers taking part.- โดยมี หมึก ท่าพระจันทร์, ยี่ บางแค, วัฒน์ บางแค, อ้วน นครปฐม ฯลฯ
