Lensbaby Velvet 85mm
Shoot the full-frame Velvet 85mm at f/4 and wider (all the way to its widest setting of
f/1.8) and you’ll get a “velvety glow” in the areas of the frame that are out of focus. Stop
down the lens’ 12 aperture blades and the e;ect will disappear, leaving you with a filmlike look. You can focus on objects as close as 9. 5 inches from the front of the lens.

Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
This prime lens features an acceleration
sensor, which detects the orientation
of the lens—information used by the
AF system for speedier, more accurate
performance. There’s also a focus limiter
and full-time manual focus override. Like
other models in Sigma’s Art line, the
135mm’s mount is dust- and splashproof.
The lens has a minimum focusing distance
of 34. 4 inches and stops down to f/16.
