The Lensbaby Twist 60 Optic with classic metal-bodied, Petzval design is a 60mm lens with bright f2.5 aperture that creates a dreamy, swirly bokeh background with subtle vignetting in the corners for a timeless, vintage effect. True to an 1840 design by Joseph Petzval, this lens reveals striking separation between subjects and their background, making it well suited to portraits. For use with Canon DSLRs.

Free your subjects from their background with Twist 60, a 60mm f/2.5 lens for full frame SLR and Mirrorless cameras that will help you discover the essence of your subject - adding magic and emotion to your portraits, still life images and more.

Twist 60 helps you draw extra attention to your subjects by separating them from their background with delicious twisty, swirly blur. True to an 1840 design by Joseph Petzval, this lens reveals striking separation between subjects and their background, a quality that modern lens designs lack.

Shooting at bright apertures maximizes the effect and produces a subtle vignette that calls further attention to anything you place within the large central area of focus, for a timeless, vintage look. As you stop down the area of focus gets larger while still creating subtle swirling at the edges.

Twist 60 is a black anodized metal-bodied, non-tilting lens with gold anodized accents that mounts directly to your camera. Available in mounts for Canon EF, Nikon F and Sony E, it is recommended for use on full frame cameras only.

Twist 60 Optic is part of the Optic Swap System and is also available as an individual optic for use with full frame cameras. When using Twist 60 Optic in a tilting lens body, keep the lens pointed straight ahead for best results.

Our absolute favourite find was the Museo Sorolla, a celebration of the life and work of Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923). The museum, opened in 1932, was once the Madrid home of this influential impressionist painter.
