Create soulful portraits with our Velvet 85 art lens. Compose impressionistic masterpieces with a velvety glow at bright apertures, straight out of camera. Use darker apertures to bypass glow and make images with a crisp, film-like aesthetic. 

Building on the strengths of our bestselling Velvet 56 lens, Velvet 85 combines lustrous skin tones with the added compression and buttery smooth bokeh found in the best 85mm portrait lenses. Use its macro capabilities to capture significant details with new life. 

The Velvet 85 design features a solid heft and smooth, dampened manual focus.

A unique short telephoto with distinct classic appeal, the Sony A-mount Velvet 85mm f/1.8 from Lensbabyproduces 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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Short telephoto portrait-length lens is designed for full-frame Sony A-mount DSLRs, however it can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
  • 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.
  • A working distance of 9.5" along with a 1:2 reproduction ratio suits working with close-up subjects.
  • A 12-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth bokeh quality that is ideal for selective focus imagery.
