The perfect portrait lens - Velvet 85 captures your frame in a layer of tack-sharp detail overlaid with radiant velvety glow.
"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. "
I am having a little learning curve going manual, but in no way view that as a negative.
I love the results it produces. It took me a little while to get used to it, but it did not take long since I used manual lenses way back when digital was probably not even a word.
I haven't had a chance to use the velvet 85 much yet but I'm happy with what I've seen so far. I have only used it to take a few photos of my cat and some flowers. I haven't yet had a chance to use it outdoors. Nothing blooming yet here in Alaska. Love the glow I can get with it.
I love the compression and classic velvet glow of this lens and can't wait to use it for portraits!
I have only used it a few times since I received it but I’m very happy with the results. I look forward to taking it on an upcoming vacation and using it more.
