Sale price$279.95

This updated version of the original Soft Focus optic includes a 12-blade manually adjustable internal aperture, enhancing its unique drop-in magnetic aperture system. At its brightest settings, the Soft Focus II creates impressionistic images with subtle sharp details and a soft pastel color palette. When stopped down to f/8 or darker, it produces traditionally sharp images with a large central focus and out-of-focus edges. The 12-blade aperture allows quick transitions from glowing to sharp effects by simply turning the front of the optic.

Unique Softness

"The SoftFocus II is my new favorite Lensbaby! Creating a unique softness nothing like any other lens but allows for you to still capture the details and a great macro with a few filters!!! Way to go with another winner!"

Creative Precision

"The new version improves upon its predecessor by adding a 12-blade manually adjustable internal aperture to the drop-in magnetic aperture system that allows photographers to fine-tune the effect. With the original version you had to commit to the look you were going after before you started to focus, so this improvement should add for some increased flexibility and creative precision."
