Lensbaby Twist 60 Optic with Straight Body Overview

Draw attention to your subject by creating a smooth subtle swirl to your edges with the Lensbaby Twist 60 Optic with Straight Body available here with a Canon EF mount. This optic is compatible with the Optic Swap System and performs best when used with the included straight body.This full-frame 60mm f/2.5 lens features an internal 12-blade diaphragm for smooth out-of-focus areas. You can manually change the aperture from f/2.5 to f/22 utilizing the dial on the front of the lens and you can manually focus on subjects as close as 18".

When shooting at a wider aperture, the Twist 60's swirled effect places more emphasis on your centered subject in full focus. As you stop down, the center area gets larger allowing you to bring more of your image into exact focus. The Twist 60 offers 46mm front threads for any filters you would like to use to further enhance your image.

The Twist 60 works best and is recommended for use with full frame cameras. Much of the swirled blur gets lost when using the optic with an APS-C sensor.

question

Does the lens support built-in metering?
Asked by: Eugene J.
Our lenses have no electronics in them. If you shoot in Aperture Priority mode your in-camera light meter should work but everything else will be manual.

question

How is the aperture set? Is it done so using the camera itself? Many thanks.
Asked by: Vincent H.
The aperture is set by twisting the optic itself (it has a built in aperture).

question

Is this manual focus only, or will it work with the canon autofocus system?
Asked by: Anonymous
All Lensbaby products are manual focus only. A slight learning curve, but you'll adapt. Be sure your diopter is set for your personal vision before you attempt to focus manually.

question

Is the Twist 60 at all effective with a crop sensor camera, like the micro four thirds format?
Asked by: David
The Twist 60 was designed for full-frame cameras. We don't recommend using it on a crop sensor camera because a lot of the twisty effect will be cropped out by your camera. Here is our Twist 60 comparison between a full-frame camera and a crop censor camera: <a href= http://lensbaby.com/twist-60-full-frame-vs-crop-sensor/. target= _blank >http://lensbaby.com/twist-60-full-frame-vs-crop-sensor/.</a> Here is a review of this optic on a crop sensor camera: <a href= https://www.lifepixel.com/gear/lensbaby-twist-60. target= _blank >https://www.lifepixel.com/gear/lensbaby-twist-60.</a> There would be even more of a crop when using a Micro 4/3 camera.

question

Is the straight body compatible with all the other optics too? How does it work with Edge and Sweet optics?
Asked by: Eugene J.
Yes, the straight body that the Twist 60 is sold in is also optic swap compatible. Everything will be centered. The Sweet optics will work great but the Edge optics need to be tilted slightly to see the Edge effect. Because of this, I would not recommend using the Edge optics in the straight body unless you want to use them like a prime lens.

question

Compatible with Canon 40D?
Asked by: Anonymous
Absolutely! However, please note: 1.6x magnification factor = mild telephoto good for singles or small groups, unless you are quite far away! Also, operation and focus is completely manual, so check out the steps for using an all-manual lens in your Owners manual. Very slow and deliberate methodology and operation, but worth it if you love the effect! Need a special commitment to taking your time while using this lens, in other words!
