Create a serious impact with the Twist 60 Optic! Make your subject pop by surrounding them in twisty bokeh & subtle vignette.
The Composer Pro II lens body tilts and swivels, moving the area of focus. Simply swap out the inside optic, to create a variety of selective focus effects at different focal lengths.
Free your subject from their background with stunning separation & beautiful bokeh.

Creates a cool vintage look & feel with its classic 1840 Joseph Petzval design.

"The Twist 60 creates lovely swirly looking shots and it’s in a modern, easy to use housing that weights practically nothing."
"I enjoy the Twist 60 for its great, unique bokeh. Its tiny size fits perfectly in my travel bag and allows me to easily integrate the surrounding environment into my pictures in an unparalleled & exceptional way."
"This lens is super sharp! I would say it's my sharpest Lensbaby lens."
"Twist 60 does exactly what it is supposed to do, and does it well. "
I bought this for my wife for our anniversary. She has other Lensbaby products and enjoys the creative effects of the lenses. The way the background swirls, making the subject stand it is really cool.
This is a powerful and amazing optic. It has created some very unusual and beautiful images for me almost immediately. The learning curve was really short. The quality of the images is superb. My flower photography has taken a new direction with this twist optic. I highly recommend it to nature and landscape photographers. It also does some fun stuff with portraits as well.
The Twist is fantastic! The colors, the swirling effect and its very little weight make this lens a go to lens! Use it to add magic to your every day life and to shoot extraordinary!
I’ve greatly enjoyed using this lens to create unique portraits of my family and pets. It’s worth it for photos in front of holiday lights alone. The swirly effect is versatile, too—you can create swirls, or you can surround your subject with cat’s eye bokeh balls, or simply frame them with something akin to a strong vignette. All these are much more natural-looking than manipulating a photo in post processing. This lens is a great value, too; it's not the only lens that creates swirly bokeh, but it’s higher quality than a lot of the vintage ones you can buy and doesn’t need an adapter, and it’s smaller, lighter, and cheaper than a lot of the reissues of those same vintage lenses. And the Optic Swap system is a great system to buy into in general.
Nice effects with this one. Works well on FF camera. Not very impressive on a crop sensor. Requires the right backgrounds for great effects.
I received this lens a few days ago and have truly fallen in love with it! The focus is so crisp and clear! The swirl created around subjects is fun, creative, and so very unique! This is a great lens to start with if you are new with Lensbaby for there isn't much learning curve. It's great in nature and with people, and the flare it creates is stunning!
Love this lens and the twist effect. Just what I was hoping for when I purchased; this lens does not disappoint!
Taking creativity to another level. The twist gives you the unique background with that amazing focus spot. Keep them coming Lensbaby!!!
The Twist 60 delivers the beautiful, swirly bokeh of the classic Petzval design, in a much smaller and easier to use package. Unlike the other Optic Swap lenses, the Twist 60 is not designed to tilt, largely because it vignettes pretty hard when you do. You can crop around that if desired. If you already have one of the composer lens mounts, this optic can be swapped in, otherwise it is available in a dedicated non-tilting mount. The lens produces beautifully sharp centers, great separation from the background, and the unique swirl that is the signature of the Petzval design. If you want to add a classic appearance to your photographs, look no further. For additional interest, try having something out of focus in the forground.
I love the pictures this lens make
Still learning it, but first results are impressive. Impressive bokeh and selection of focus point.
