Separate your subject from the background while creating a swirled blur around the edges with the Lensbaby Twist 60. Compatible with the Optic Swap System, 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 as well as manually adjust the focus as close as 18" from your subject. 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.

    Twist 60 Optic is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Creative and Innovative Lensbaby Product First of all, the Twist 60 is amazingly sharp in the dead center shooting wide open at f/2.5 and becomes increasing sharper as it is stopped down. The swirling bokeh effect is great at isolating a subject in the center with vivid movement in the periphery. I'm looking forward to adding this concept to glamour and boudoir shoots. The Lensbaby documentation suggests keeping the Composer Pro straight with the Twist 60, but I'm tempted to tilt it as well. Keep in mind, the swirling effect may not be obvious at first if you're viewing the results of your shots on your camera's 3 inch LCD. When viewed on a full screen/monitor, it's quite pronounced. Also, the fact that Lensbaby products are relatively inexpensive and can deliver this level of sharpness and image quality is astounding. I also own the Sweet 35 and Edge 80 and find them equally of tremendous value for the price. I own many Nikon pro lenses, including the f/2.8 trinity, the f/1.4G's, PC-E lenses, Defocus Control lenses, etc., and find Lensbaby to be a bargain!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun lens to have This optic does exactly what is says. Really makes your subject stand out from the background with it opened up. Pay attention to the manufactures suggested usage and try to use live view for best focus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This will see a lot of use. I like the way this optic makes your subject stand out from a background. Shooting in live-view helps with focus and being able to see just how much background blur/bokeh you are getting. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking at adding this to their bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Effect Nice optical effect on full frame camera.� Haven't tried DX format yet. Only negative is it is hard to tell when it locks into the base so I had it fall out on the pavement when I used it the first time. Luckily it is sturdy and did not damage it. Other than that it would be 5 stars as it is easy to use and provides wonderful images.� My first photo with it is attached.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lensbaby has brought fun & creativity into my photography The Twist optic, known more for the swirl of bokah, produces very nice effects. I learned to achieve the swirl your subject should be about 6-7 feet from the camera.� I really like this optic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific, more than expected!!! One of best recent Lensbaby lens. Easy to get great results. Best effects when wide aperature and when there's separation of subject and background. Immediate success!!! I highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite toy I am a huge fan of anything Lensbaby and the twist 60 is no exception. The focus is sharp when you find it and the Bokeh is beautiful and unique to the cameras of the past.
