Lensbaby Velvet 28mm f/2.5 Overview

A unique wide-angle prime marrying versatility and distinctness, the black FUJIFILM X-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-normal prime is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and 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.

How does this lens work with the NIKON D90?

How does this lens work with the NIKON D90?
Asked by: Harvey
The Lensbaby Velvet 28mm f/2.5 Lens for Nikon F (Silver) would be compatible for use with the Nikon D90 DSLR camera. Do note that the Lensbaby Velvet 28mm f/2.5 Lens for Nikon F (Silver) is a fully manual lens with no electronic contacts on the lens. As such, you would not have aperture control using the dials on the camera body, so you will need to use the aperture ring built onto the ring. EXIF data and metering data will not transferred from the lens to the camera..

Wouldn't I be able to get the same effect using a filter on my 28mm lens?
Asked by: Vance
It might be possible to find a similar filter but it would be hard. Specially an effect where the subject looks soft and the background highlights look rounded and bloomed.
