Product Highlights
  • 50mm
  • Multi-Coated Optical Glass Doublet
  • Magnetic Disk Aperture System

The Lensbaby Soft Focus Optic creates a velvety soft image perfect for portraits, flowers, landscapes, or any subject that needs a soft touch. Soft Focus has a look that is evenly soft throughout the image without the sweet spot of sharp focus created by the Lensbaby selective focus optics. You can vary the amount of softness by changing the aperture disks.

Simply use your optic swap tool to pop out your installed optic and drop in the Soft Focus optic. To control the degree of softness, change your aperture by touching the tip of your Magnetic Aperture Removal Tool to the aperture disk and lifting it out. Then drop a new aperture disk into the front of the lens.

            Just got it, but it is already my favorite Lensbaby acc. It leaves the center sharp while softening the edges of your shots much like the old glamour shots of days gone bye.

            Comments about Lensbaby Soft Focus Optic:

            Bought soft focus optic with composer pro. Have used it a little. Playing with aperture rings. Have not fully gotten a shot I'm pleased with. As I said, probably have not used it enough yet.

            It is easy to swap in and out of composer pro.

            Have found more success with other optics and am gravitating toward those...double glass and sweet 35.

            Overall, not giving up on it. Just too early to tell/review.
