Lensbaby Sol 45 Review

Lensbaby Sol 45 Sharpness at 45mm

For these sharpness tests the Lensbaby Sol 45 lens was attached to a Fujifilm X-E2S body, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.

Again, there is only one aperture available with this lens, and sharpness is not what is intended. The sharpest part of the image will be the centre, or whatever you’ve pointed the tilting mechanism at. The centre is fairly sharp, but if you look at 100%, you’ll notice that it’s not perfect - again, that is not the point of a lens like this, though. At the edges, the image is intentionally blurred.
