The Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f/1.6 Lens for Nikon F (Silver) is a 56mm f/1.6 with 1:2 macro capabilities for SLR cameras from Lensbaby. Inspired by classic portrait lenses from the mid-20th century, this manual focus portrait lens delivers a soft, glowing effect at brighter apertures and beautifully sharp yet subtly unique images as you stop down. The gorgeous, velvety- tones give your digital images a film-like, organic quality. This incredibly versatile lens enables photographers to move seamlessly from shooting an environmental portrait, to capturing the finest details with focus as close as 5" from the front of the lens.

The overall softness can be controlled by stopping down the lens while still retaining the smooth tonality of a soft focus lens. It is compatible with full-frame image 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.

Features:
  • Portrait-length 56mm focal length is compatible with full-frame format sensors as well as APS-C format sensors, where it will provide an 84mm equivalent focal length.
  • 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.
  • The unique singlet-doublet-singlet lens design renders imagery with a soft, smooth, and glowing image quality reminiscent of mid-20th century portrait lenses.
  • 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 1:2 maximum magnification ratio and 5" minimum working distance enable working with close-up subjects.
  • Black all-metal lens barrel with engraved aperture and focus markings.
  • Manual focus design with a smooth, dampened focusing movement is complemented by engraved focus distance indicators.
  • Manual exposure control requires stop-down metering and manual setting of the aperture.
