Show Some Style with the Lensbaby Velvet 56 Limited Edition


Add some style to your images and your camera with the just released, and in stock, Limited Edition of Lensbaby’s Velvet 56 f/1.6 Lens for Canon EF and Nikon F mounts. This “new classic” 56mm portrait lens embraces many of the aesthetic imperfections found in vintage lenses to create glowing, ethereal images that cannot be mimicked with the almost clinical precision of modern glass. A 1:2 macro capability furthers use by expanding the creative tool box and appealing to nature and macro photographers. As the Limited Edition, this version includes a custom-made handcrafted wooden box and features the integration of copper-anodized accents on the aperture ring and lens cap that gives the silver barrel a distinct look reminiscent of classic mid-20th Century optics. Along with this, the Velvet 56 has a well-damped manual focus ring, befitting a lens of this style. There are only 400 lenses worldwide in this limited-edition run.
