New Lensbaby Sweet 22 Pancake Lens

Lensbaby has done it again, bringing something incredible to sweeten your creativity! Get ready to eat up the new Sweet 22 pancake lens from Lensbaby! Featuring the most blur outside the smallest sweet spot of any Lensbaby lens, the Sweet 22 is bringing dramatic optical effects to stills and video imagery that have never before been possible.

The Lensbaby Sweet 22 features a compact, robust metal body and built-in focus down to 5 inches from the front element. As a mirrorless-only creative effects lens, the Sweet 22 creates a tiny, tack-sharp, centred sweet spot that gives a sense of motion to still images while creating dramatic focus transitions of moving subject matter coming into or out of the sweet spot when shooting video.

Experience a sea of impressionistic blur that gradually transitions to a precise, tack-sharp sweet spot to create imagery more dramatic than previous selective focus lenses. Adding to this dramatic selective focus effect is a super-wide angle of view of almost 90 degrees on full-frame cameras. This allows you to pinpoint a single subject from its surroundings while getting up close, down to 5 inches away from the lens, to separate the subject from its background.
