Make selective focus photography as easy as tilt, focus, shoot with the Sol 45! This compact lens creates a sweet spot of focus effect surrounded by smooth bokeh.
Love what I can do with this lens.
To be honest I wasn't expecting much, but I decided to give it a try because of its price. The first time i tried it I was frustrated , but then I had an epiphany "What if I tried it on macro flower photography ? " and then I fell in love with its softness and its artistic touch. Soon after that I figured it is also great for street photography, because it lets you see usual things in an unusual artistic way. A great addition to my unique lens collection!
I have had this lens for a month. In that time I have shot merry-go-rounds, dogs, the Oceanfront, sand sculptures, a quilt show, plants, a playground. It rarely leaves my camera. I love the images I am getting, I love the sharpness of the focal point, I love the tilt, I love the ease of use, I love the light weight.
When I saw the Sol 45 I was so excited to try it! And I absolutely love it! It is metal (like my Canon Mirrorless lenses), and very lightweight, so I have been taking it everywhere! It is a very sharp lens, and renders colors accurately. I love the bokeh blades, they are so much fun! It's nice being able to have the sweet spot look (like my Sweet 35, 50 & 80), my also being able to mix it up with the bokeh blades! I love the patterns they give! I was able to get nice sharp photos of a squirrel on a tree and beautiful macro photos of flowers with the Lensbaby Macro filters! I think everyone should have this in their photography kits! And the tilt feature is great! I like it so much I haven't locked that feature yet! :) Way to go Lensbaby! (now for future lenses maybe multiple bokeh blades shapes......) :)
