"This lens takes the magic provided by the Velvet 56 to another level. The longer focal length provides compression and the resulting background bokeh is just gorgeous, more blur to love!"
"One of the things I love most about this lens is how the beautiful glow and blur makes every frame interesting and emotional."
"The thing that stood out to me most was how flexible this was at a range of apertures. In a matter of seconds you have a dreamy, ethereal looking image and then a razor sharp portrait lens almost immediately."
"A nice look that lends images a dreamlike element of fantasy, with just enough detail to keep the subject well defined. "
The Velvet 85 can facilitate some gorgeous, artful photos and I love having that capability. The lens is ill fitting for my Nikon camera. I’m doubtful this problem can be solved.
