A unique wide-angle prime marrying versatility and distinctness, the silver Canon EF-mount Lensbaby Velvet 28mm f/2.5 is a lens with a look reminiscent of classic portrait optics, but with the broad field of view to suit outdoor, landscape, and even close-up subjects. 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 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 2″ with a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:2 to benefit working with close-up subjects.
Wide-angle prime is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C-format models where it provides a 44.8mm equivalent focal length.
The f/2.5 maximum aperture strikes a balance between brightness and depth of field control and maintaining an overall sleek profile.
A working distance of 2″ along with a 1:2 reproduction ratio suits working with close-up subjects.
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 isolating subject matter.
Multi-coated elements resist flare and help to maintain accurate color rendering when working in strong lighting conditions.
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.
