Create miniature macro worlds, rich landscapes, otherworldly street scenes, and more with the versatile Lensbaby Velvet 56 art lens.

Compose scenes that are lit from within, emanating glow at wide apertures. Shoot at darker apertures to give your photos a sharp, vintage look – with a subtle fall-off on the edges. Focus close to discover an entirely new, larger-than-life miniature world.

Reminiscent of classic 20th century lenses, the Sony E mount Velvet 56mm f/1.6 Lens from Lensbabyproduces a uniquely soft, glowing image quality that is well-suited to making expressive and ethereal portraits. The overall softness can be controlled by stopping down the lens while still retaining the smooth tonality of a soft focus lens. Compatible with full-frame sensors, this slightly longer-than-normal focal length pairs with the fast f/1.6 maximum aperture to excel in difficult lighting and achieve a shallow depth of field with controllable sharpness. Additionally, for increased creative versatility, the lens also offers a 1:2 maximum magnification and a minimum working distance of 5" for macro shooting. Housed within a black metal barrel, this lens also features smooth, dampened manual focus control to further benefit creative flexibility. Consistent with Lensbaby's aim of purveying selective focus capabilities and a unique velvety image quality, the Velvet 56mm f/1.6 is a versatile tool that marries classical looks with contemporary control.

  • Manual focus design with a smooth, dampened focusing movement is complemented by engraved focus distance indicators.
  • 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.
  • Fast f/1.6 maximum aperture offers extensive control over selective focus and shallow depth of field, and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions.
  • Portrait-length 56mm focal length is compatible with Sony E mount cameras with full-frame format sensors as well as APS-C format sensors, where it will provide an 84mm equivalent focal length.
  • The unique singlet-doublet-singlet lens design renders imagery with a soft, smooth, and glowing image quality reminiscent of mid-20th century portrait lenses.
  • A 1:2 maximum magnification ratio and 5" minimum working distance enable working with close-up subjects.
  • Manual exposure control requires stop-down metering and manual setting of the aperture.
