Lensbaby 85mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

A unique short telephoto with distinct classic appeal, the Canon EF-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 full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however it can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 136mm 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.

    Velvet 85mm f/1.8 Lens for Canon EF is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I hoped For. The images that come out of this lens are dreamy, beautiful, ethereal. The mechanics are smooth, it feels sturdy in my hand. I'm really pleased. It hasn't left my camera since it arrived.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from F Stop Mechanism Not Working Properly! I love this lens, but it will NOT open up to either f2 or f1.8. ALSO, when shooting at f16 in the shade and on a cloudy day, there is STILL so much glow that I find it distracting. In reviewing online photos taken at f5.6 to f16, I don't see the excessive glow I'm getting at these stops. White flowers on a bush look like they've been outlined by a pale green marker. This seems to be a defective lens, and I'm hoping to return it.
