Create unique-looking photos with the selective-focus SOL 45mm f/3.5 Lens from Lensbaby for Canon EF-mount cameras. With 8.5° of tilt, this lens lets you easily isolate a subject within the frame and surround it in blur and smooth bokeh. The lens also features a center-locking feature that will lock the lens into place for dead-center focus. Furthering its creative potential are two adjustable bokeh blades that can add slight lines or textures to bokeh. This manual-focus lens also has an all-metal construction and accepts 46mm filters.

Lensbaby Sol Reviews

Sol 45mm f/3.5 Lens for Canon EF Cameras is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lensbaby Sol 45mm Canon has so much creative fun :) The Lensbaby Sol was a birthday gift for my daughter, so the review is from her perspective. First of all, she appreciates the build quality and ease of use from using the lens straight or tilted along with the ease of using the bokeh blades. Secondly, she is appreciating the 45mm (68mm on a Canon EOS M5). The f/3.5 lens allows beautiful light on the images. Third, the bokeh blades are lots of fun to use at any angle or move for a classic photo. The Lensbaby Sol lens is a wonderful creative lens to add to your photography bag. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The total package Lensbaby hit a home run with this little lens ! The sweet spot stays in the frame ( no worries ) and the aperture is fixed ( again, no worries ). So far, I've used it on my Canon 77D for urban landscapes and for tabletop Still Lifes. Great lens - I love it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very interesting and creative lens I haven't been feeling very creative when it comes to my photography as of late. When I saw this lens become available I thought for the price, why not? I really enjoy this lens for flower photography and follow an amazing photographer Kathleen Clemons who uses Lensbaby including the new Sol 45 with incredible results. If using this lens for flowers, I would suggest either getting the Lensba y macro kit or extension tubes to get really close. Have fun with it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific for creative photography! I love this lens! The bokeh is amazingly smooth. It takes a bit of work to get the hang of it but once you do the photos are terrific. The hardest aspect of the lens is to make sure the image is truly in focus since its a manual focus lens and the area that is in focus is very small. Once you understand how to use it the images are very sharp. Practice makes perfect with this lens and the price point is well within reach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest to use lensbaby yet! I love this lensbaby. I own three different styles, including the original which I purchased just months after it debuted. I like the way the tilt stays in place while you manually focus the lens. You can shift your focus point by tilting the lens in different directions. Or you can lock the lens in place with the sweet spot in the middle. It is an economical and fun lens to use!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I tried to like it! I have the Composer Pro II 50mm and I like the pictures that I get from it. I have been wanting the Sol for a while and was excited when B&H had it on sale but I just dont like the photos I get from it so I returned it.
