Designed exclusively for micro 4/3rds cameras only. Make selective focus photography as easy as tilt, focus, shoot with the Sol 22! This compact lens creates a spot of focus effect surrounded by smooth bokeh.
"No two images will be exactly alike with this lens. The options to place your focal point with selective blur and add another layer of texture using the blades, makes me want to explore even further."
"Getting creative with lens effects gets you to revaluate how you create moving images. The limitations of the fixed aperture created space to experiment. "
"I feel free to look at things differently when shooting with the Sol and throw our any preconceived notion of the "rules". I just experiment, shoot, and enjoy the process of creation."
"While the Sol is designed for blur, it is impressively sharp within the sweet spot "
-Hillary K. Grigonis
"There are no clichés with this lens, it's just a bunch of fun."
I love using this for any selective focus subject, whether a city scene or macro
Having a hard time focusing on one subject. I like the create aspect that others achieve. Hopefully with practice I will be able to nail the creative focus of one singular point.
I have wanted to buy a Lensbaby for a while, but it took me some time to figure out what was the best one for me to buy. Since I shoot with an Olympus MFT camera, this one was the perfect size enabling the full amount of creativity to be explored with my smaller sensor. It will take a little while to fully master its use, but I really like what I have done with it so far. Build quality and fit are excellent and it works well with my camera. I am excited to play with it more.
Actually the lens appears to be VERY well made, and unique. However, after taking a look at it, I decided it just wasn’t for me; so I returned it. This however, does negate the quality and usability of this lens for the right person.
I love playing with the various features. The artistic quality of my images is wonderful! I’m so glad I got it.
