"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 was on the fence about whether to purchase this lens since I already own the Velvet 56 and the Velvet 28. Now that I’ve added it to my collection I don’t know how I ever lived without it. This incredibly versatile lens which allows for 1:2 macro as well as a long focal length for portraits and far-away subjects, has the added benefit of super creamy bokeh that adds a bit of magic to every image. And of course like it’s sisters, this lens offers a gorgeous velvety glow when opened up. I’m always excited when I arrive home after a day of working with this lens!
Seriously amazed at what the Velvet 85 is capable of! The glow and colours are beautiful. Can’t wait for years of creativity and drool worthy portraits :)
