Reviewed: Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f/1.6 (on Sony A7R II)

 
Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f/1.6

See my Sony wish list and other wish lists at B&H Photo.

The about $499 Lensbaby Velvet 56mm f/1.6 is available for Sony E, Nikon, Canon, Micro Four Thirds, Fujifilm X, Pentax and more, and in silver and black and copper finish.

Massive uncorrected optical aberrations lend a halo effect to images at wider apertures which are best used for 'classic' special effects purposes. The results can be very pretty, but the look is so distinctive that it can be easily overused. As such, it should be considered a solid but special-purpose tool.

Image sizes up to 28 megapixels pixels, with crops.
