Lensbaby 85mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

A unique short telephoto with distinct classic appeal, the Fujifilm X-mount Velvet 85mm f/1.8 from Lensbaby produces a mid-20th century-inspired image quality that is well-suited to portraiture. Characterized by a smooth, glowing aesthetic, this lens's softness can be controlled by stopping down in order to produce a range of effects from soft and dreamy to sharper and crunchier at smaller apertures. A 12-blade diaphragm also contributes to the lens's aesthetic, and helps to produce a smooth bokeh quality to suit shallow depth of field imagery. Additionally, the manual focus design affords a working distance of 9.5" with a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:2 to benefit working with close-up subjects.

Short telephoto portrait-length lens is designed for Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras, where it provides a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture affords greater control over depth of field for working with shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques, and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
Inspired by classic portrait lenses from the mid-20th century, this lens is designed to produce an ethereal glowing quality with soft, smooth tonality that is well-suited to portraiture.
Softness can be controlled by stopping-down the lens: when stopped-down to f/16, the image exhibits a smooth quality with greater central sharpness.
A working distance of 9.5" along with a 1:2 reproduction ratio suits working with close-up subjects.
Manual focus design with a smooth, dampened focusing movement is complemented by engraved focus distance indicators.
A 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality that is ideal for selective focus imagery.

    Lensbaby 85mm f/1.8 reviews

    Velvet 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Fujifilm X is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! This is one amazing specialty lens.� The build quality is better than I expected; a firm focus ring, metal lens cap, and screw-on metal lens hood.� It did take me a few minutes to figure out why the shutter button on my Fuji XT-2 would not work with this lens.� Thank goodness for YouTube.� I had to go into the menu and select the function to be able to take a picture without a lens attached.� Once I made the selection, I began capturing amazing flower images.� My flower photography has taken great leaps forward.
