An interesting lens has recently joined Lensbaby family: Burnside 35 is a f/2.8 wide-angle adaptation of the Petzval lens design, with an effect slider that operates as a second internal iris. DIYP spoke to Craig Strong from Lensbaby about this creative lens that lets you change the swirl in the bokeh, as well as adjust the vignette and center brightness.

Lensbaby Burnside 35 is all-metal, non-tilting lens similar to their Velvet series. It’s made for full frame bodies, but it can be used on crop bodies as well. You can get it in eight different mounts: Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony A, Pentax K, Micro 4/3, Sony E, Fuji X and Samsung NX. As for the DIYP crew, we tested it out on our Nikons.

As Mr. Strong says, this is one of the most versatile Lensbabies they’ve made. It’s described as being ideal for “street, landscapes, environmental portraits and more.” It’s not a macro lens, but it lets you come pretty close, which adds to the versatility.

Here are the specs of the Lensbaby Burnside 35:

  • Focal Length: 35mm
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8-16
  • 6 blade internal aperture
  • 8 blade secondary internal aperture for the effect slider
  • Minimum Focus Distance: 6 inches
  • Maximum Focus Distance: Infinity
  • 62mm filter threads
  • Focus type: Manual
  • Size/ Weight: 13.2 oz (374.21g)
  • 6 multi-coated glass elements, in 4 groups
