Lensbaby Velvet 56 Fuji Black

The Lensbaby Velvet 56 mm F/1.6 SE lens is a 56 mm F1.6 portrait lens with a 1: 2 macro magnification. The lens can be used on both full-frame bodies as on APS-C cameras (89.6 mm). As usual with Lensbaby, this lens needs to be focused manually. The Lensbaby Velvet 56 mm ensures a soft, dreamy effect and a beautiful blur in the background. This makes the lens ideal for making portraits. And with the closest focusing distance of 12, 7 cm and the magnification ratio of 1: 2, the smallest details are logged. This makes the Lens baby Velvet 56 mm extremely versatile and suitable for all your creative expressions.

Jeremy Lavender Photography - 2/20/2019 I'm using this lens on both Fuji X-Pro2 and Fuji X-H1 and I must say I'm very impressed by the build quality. Focusing ring is smooth and it also has a clicking aperture ring which to me is a huge advantage in still photography.
Maximal aperture is f/1.6 but personally and to be honest, after trying it a few times, focusing is very difficult at this number (even with focus peaking) and the glowy effect is a bit too much for my taste. I really enjoy the Velvet effect for pictures taken at f/2.8 and f/4; to me that's the sweet spot between enough sharpness and the nice Velvet touch giving excellent results. I also tried shooting at f/8 and f/11 and as expected on a crop sensor camera, the Velvet effect is barely noticeable if at all when stepping down at this level. But, the good news is that sharpness and colours are lovely at these smaller apertures which is making this lens more polyvalent than initially expected. And, finally, this is also a macro lens... kind of with a macro magnification of 1:2. I don't really shot macro but that's good to have it too for the just in case. All together, I'm very happy with this lens and the image results I'm getting from it. Not a day-to-day lens but a very nice addition for when you feel like shooting something a bit different with the peace of mind that you can extend the use of this lens to a more traditional result by simply stepping down the aperture. I can really recommend this purchase.
I like his lens and I use it a lot for portrait, macro, sharp or degrees of soft focus.

Eddie mc Donnell - 5/3/2018 I have the Fujifilm X-mount version which gives an effective focal length of 84mm on my X-T2. There is no electrical contact between the lens and camera. There are two fully manual controls on the lens; the focus ring which has a slight +/- movement before it engages the focus mechanism inside the lens itself and the aperture ring which clicks at each full stop. I usually focus with the lens set to f/5.6 and then count the clicks (up to four) as I open up the lens to increase the soft focus effect or three clicks to F/16 to increase the depth of field. This lens will focus to 13cm (5") from the subject giving a 'macro' ratio of 1:2. The Lensbaby Velvet and the X-T2 go well together, the combination looks and feels good. I use a longer lens hood (more tele) than the one that came with lens (standard) for two reasons; the lens behaves as an 85-ish lens would on a full frame camera and to avoid lens flare caused by a bright source of light e.g. the sun entering the lens. Note some adjustments have to be made to the menu of the XT-2 before using this lens on it; set it to 'shoot without lens' and set the approximate focal length i.e. 56mm.
If you try this combination I hope that you have as much fun as I do with it. It's not a Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 which is a superb must have lens but it is designed for a different purpose. If you're lucky enough to have both lenses you'll have the best of both worlds.
