This week Lensbaby announced that a number of its most popular creative effects lenses are now in Canon RF and Nikon Z mounts. Previously photographers shooting with these newer models of cameras needed to use an adapter to use any of Lensbaby’s products.
The following lenses are now available to mount natively to Canon RF and Nikon Z cameras:
- Lensbaby Sol 45mm F3.5
- Lensbaby Trio 28mm F3.5
- Lensbaby Composer Pro II
- Lensbaby Velvet 56mm F1.6
- Lensbaby Velvet 85mm F1.8
It may seem counterintuitive to attach one of Lensbaby’s funky effect lenses to a body that prides itself on producing high-resolution images that are tack sharp, but for some creators the results from a Lensbaby lens can be very pleasing. The manual focus Velvet lens can be ideal for shooting portraits or creating a dreamy cinematic look in a video. The Composer Pro II gives similar optical results as a tilt shift lens for a fraction of the price. The quirky lenses made by Lensbaby may not be for everyone, but they can add something creative and new to your photography.
