    I did not receive my lens!

    They sent me a Velvet 28 for Canon. I left voice mail and sent email to them. But I did not get response at all.

    Really enjoying this creative lens

    From the very first moment I put the Sol 45 on my Fujifilm X-E3, the photos we created were amazing. The ability to shift the focus point and it’s unique rendering make is a joy to work with. The Sol 45 was my first Lensbaby, but it definitely won’t be my last!
