Trio 28mm f/3.5 Lens for Sony E

Don't waste time pulling a lens out of your bag or swapping optics with the Trio 28mm f/3.5 lens. This pancake-style lens incorporates a rotating front that holds Twist, Velvet, and Sweet optics for selecting different effects at a moment's notice. The Twist uses a Petzval-inspired design for a sharp center area surrounded by a swirl of twisty bokeh. Velvet has a dreamy central area with a soft focus look along with a soft glow. Sweet creates a sharp spot of focus in the center with a gradual fall-off to blur. All these can be carried without stuffing your bag with a variety of miscellaneous equipment.

  • Works with APS-C cameras where the normal 44.8mm perspective that can be used to capture a variety of subjects, including street, portraits, landscapes, and more.
  • Fixed f/3.5 aperture helps create a predictable effect in a wide range of situations.
  • Rotating front dial with options for Twist, Velvet, and Sweet effects.
  • Twist effect uses a Petzval-inspired design for a central area of sharp focus surrounded by a swirl of twisting bokeh. This optic utilizes four glass elements in three groups.
  • Velvet effect creates a soft-focus effect with a dreamy center area with a delicate glow out to the edges.
  • Sweet effect offers a central spot of sharp focus surrounding by a gradual increase in blur.
  • Manual focusing ring that allows users to focus anywhere from 8" to infinity.
  • Multi-coating minimizes ghosting and flare.
  • Front filter thread of 46mm.

46mm Neutral Density 0.9 Filter

This solid neutral density filter helps to control movement, as well as permit working with wider than normal aperture settings by darkening the entire image. The 0.9 density requires three additional stops of exposure, enabling you to work with slower shutter speeds to blur moving subjects or wider apertures to achieve a shallow depth of field effect in bright conditions.

46mm Circular Polarizer Filter

Well-suited for outdoor and nature photography, the circular polarizer filter helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface. This results in a noticeable increase in the saturation of skies and foliage, as well as clearer imagery when photographing in hazy conditions. A circular polarizer differs from a linear polarizer in that it supports full use of a camera's autofocus and auto exposure functions.

46mm 8-Point Star Filter

This cross-screen filter produces eight reflected light points stemming from specular highlights to give a starburst effect. The filter itself is clear and has etched lines on the surface to produce the star effect without affecting color or other aspects of the image.

Lensbaby Trio 28mm f/3.5 Reviews

This baby is FUN!

I got this primarily for the Twist, and figured I'd get 2 more effects for very little (plus it was 15% off). I love the ~40mm focal length so that was a bonus. So far I've taken it to a local park as well as shot some funky jazz band photos with it on my Fuji X-H1. After using it I realized that I like all 3 effects a lot, plus you can create even more interesting effects by dialing it in between two settings! Also, a MFD of a mere 8 is pretty dang good. It's not an everyday lens, but it's definitely one I keep in my bag for creativity.

Wonderful little lens

Love this little lens that works so well on my Fuji-X mount camera. For those of us who like the effects produced by Lensbaby lens but not able to afford 3 separate lens, this is a great alternative.

I wish the Trio 28mm has auto focus but one can't have everything. The lens is easy to use, the effects are dramatic and really wonderful.

Great fun, always with me!

The Trio has allowed me to play and be creative, experimenting with angles and views I wouldn't have normally considered, often with outstanding results. It's small and light enough that I can keep it with me at all times.

I will update this with more experience, but so far, I really like this lens. It's easy to switch to different modes and it's fun to explore what's possible.

Great buy

For $200 this is absolutely worth it. I wanted the try the velvet lens and a few other products by lensbaby, but wasn't sure I would use the lenses enough to pay full price for multiple lenses. This is the perfect little trio! Takes some really unique pictures and it's a lot of fun to shoot with. Would definitely but another lensbaby lens in the future.

Lots of fun

If you want a different look to your images try this little lens. And complements to B&H for actually sending me the Sony E mount. 2 previous attempts with other vendors delivered first a micro 4/3 then a Fuji mount- and one of them sent from interstate Australia took as long as the B&H delivery (about 8 days). It would get 5 stars if it had a variable aperture rather than a fixed one

Fun lens

I took the Trio 28 out one time for street photography so far. It is so light and versatile, great to carry around all day. The photos are sharp in the focus area. This lens will always be in my bag from now on.

Is this lens fit for Nikon F? If it is not suitable, is it possible to use adapter?
Asked by: Alicia
No, this is for Nikon Z-series cameras. There is likely no adapter that will work for Z-to-F due to the the flange focal distance of the Z-series lenses being smaller than the F-mount. F-to-Z works, but not the opposite.

There's some play in the lens due to the front of the lens moving relative to the axis of the barrel. Anyone else seen this problem?
Asked by: C Thomas
That does happen sometimes. That is because a spring in the mount is not very tight. The lens will still work perfectly though and allow for great images. That type of movement happens with any lens of any manufacturer.

Will this work for the Canon M5 mirror-less Camera?
Asked by: Matthew
Hi Matthew, Yes, the Trio 28 for Canon EF-M will work with the M5 mirrorless camera. You'll need to tell the camera you're shooting without a lens however since our lenses are 100% mechanical and have no electronics to talk to the camera. You can find that setting in the menu options! -Lensbaby Customer Happiness
