Product Description

Velvet 56 is a 56mm f/1.6 SLR camera lens with 1:2 macro capabilities. This “new classic" portrait lens delivers a velvety, glowing, ethereal look at brighter apertures, and beautifully sharp but subtly unique images as you stop down – with gorgeous, velvety tones that give digital images a film-like, organic quality. The incredibly versatile Velvet 56 enables photographers to move seamlessly from shooting an environmental portrait, to capturing details in a subject's clothing or jewelry. Nature and macro photographers will find its close-focus capabilities, combined with effects varying from impressionistic to just a touch of velvety smoothness, provide a set of visual tools that will expand their vision of the world.

Evoking the image style and construction quality of classic portrait lenses of the mid-20th century, Velvet 56 features the heft and smooth, dampened manual focus of these early lenses. Velvet 56, with an all-metal body, is available in two colors: traditional black and a special silver edition, Velvet 56 SE. Velvet 56 SE features a beautiful clear-anodized finish, along with engraved aperture and focus markings.
