Lensbaby Announces Soft Focus II Optic with 12-Blade Adjustable Aperture


Lensbaby has announced the Soft Focus II 50 Optic, the new and improved follow-up to one of the most sought-after optics from its heralded Optic Swap System, the original Soft Focus. Chief among the Soft Focus II's enhancements is a new 12-blade, manually adjustable internal aperture, which allows users to change the optical effect of their images quickly—from "dreamy and impressionistic" to high-contrast images that are "beautifully detailed and sharp."
