Key Features
  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.5 to f/22
  • 1:2 Magnification, 2" Working Distance
  • Soft Glowing Effect at Wide Apertures
A unique wide-angle prime marrying versatility and distinctness, the black Sony E-mount Lensbaby Velvet 28mm f/2.5 is a lens with a look reminiscent of classic portrait optics, but with the broad field of view to suit outdoor, landscape, and even close-up subjects. 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 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 2" with a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:2 to benefit working with close-up subjects.

Lensbaby Velvet 28mm f/2.5 Overview

A unique wide-angle prime marrying versatility and distinctness, the black Sony E-mount Lensbaby Velvet 28mm f/2.5 is a lens with a look reminiscent of classic portrait optics, but with the broad field of view to suit outdoor, landscape, and even close-up subjects. 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 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 2" with a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:2 to benefit working with close-up subjects.

Wide-angle prime is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 42mm equivalent focal length.
The f/2.5 maximum aperture strikes a balance between brightness and depth of field control and maintaining an overall sleek profile.
A working distance of 2" along with a 1:2 reproduction ratio suits working with close-up subjects.
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 isolating subject matter.
Multi-coated elements resist flare and help to maintain accurate color rendering when working in strong lighting conditions.
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.

Yes, the Lensbaby Velvet 28mm f/2.5 Lens for Nikon F would be compatible for use on the Nikon D500 DSLR camera. Do note that this is a fully manual lens with no electronic contacts to communicate with the camera, so you will have to focus the lens manually and set the aperture using the aperture ring built onto the camera.
