Photography News: Lensbaby Introduces the Twist 60, a 60mm f/2.5 Lens for Full-Frame Cameras That Separate Subject From the Background With a Swirled Blurred Effect Around the Edges of Your Image

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 12, 2016) - B&H Photo would like to share Lensbaby's announcement of the Twist 60 Lens in Canon EF, Nikon F, and Sony E mounts, as well the individual Twist 60 Optic. The Twist 60 provides photographers with a 60mm f/2.5 lens that can help to separate subjects from the background by creating a smooth, swirled blur effect around the edges of the image.

The Twist 60 is compatible with full-frame cameras, and is great for portraits, still-life images, and experimentation with the intended swirled effect. This manual lens has built-in aperture control ranging from f/2.5 to f/22, and allows photographers to focus as close as 18". Four multi-coated glass elements in three groups work in tandem with its internal 12-blade diaphragm to produce smooth out-of-focus areas.
