The Lensbaby Trio 28 Gives Mirrorless Cameras Three Lenses in One

The completely awesome experimentation that Lensbaby products allow photographers is really awesome, and today the company is giving you to best of many worlds with the Trio 28. It’s a 28mm f3.5 fixed aperture lens that gives you three different view styles. You get Twist, Velvet and Sweet. Twist is designed to emulate the company’s Twist 60 lens that is a nod to Petzval optics. The Velvet is soft, and the sweet is sharp. The Lensbaby Trio 28 has manual focus too. On full frame cameras, Lensbaby is saying that it will produce subtle vignetting.
