Velvet 85 is a f/1.8, 85mm art lens that infuses images with edge-to-edge ethereal glow, or a crisp vintage look by stopping down the aperture. Plus, focus up close on Velvet’s macro capabilities.

Create soulful portraits with our Velvet 85 art lens. Compose impressionistic masterpieces with a velvety glow at bright apertures, straight out of camera. Use darker apertures to bypass glow and make images with a crisp, film-like aesthetic.

Building on the strengths of our bestselling Velvet 56 lens, Velvet 85 combines lustrous skin tones with the added compression and buttery smooth bokeh found in the best 85mm portrait lenses. Use its macro capabilities to capture significant details with new life. 

The Velvet 85 design features a solid heft and smooth, dampened manual focus.

Velvet 85 is an 85mm f/1.8 manual focus lens. At bright apertures, Velvet 85 creates an ethereal glow over your entire image, from edge to edge. At darker apertures, the glow lessens and dissipates entirely by f/5.6, leaving a tack-sharp image with a film-like aesthetic and subtle softness at the edges of the frame. Velvet 85 also features a built-in 1:2 macro capability with a minimum focus distance of 9.5 inches from the front of the lens. This all combines to make for a very versatile, creative shooting experience.
