 A unique short telephoto with distinct classic appeal, the Micro Four Thirds-mount Velvet 85mm f/1.8 from Lensbaby produces a mid-20th century-inspired image quality that is well-suited to portraiture. 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 and crunchier 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 9.5" with a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:2 to benefit working with close-up subjects.

  • Short telephoto portrait-length lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, where it provides a 170mm equivalent focal length.
  • Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture affords greater control over depth of field for working with shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques, and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
  • 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 portraiture.
  • Softness can be controlled by stopping-down the lens: when stopped-down to f/16, the image exhibits a smooth quality with greater central sharpness.
  • A working distance of 9.5" along with a 1:2 reproduction ratio suits working with close-up subjects.
  • 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.
