Lensbaby have just released two new Sol lenses in the 45mm and 22mm focal length. These lenses are designed for what Lensbaby calls the “tilt, focus, shoot ” philosophy.
The 45mm version is designed for the Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony A, Pentax K, Sony E and Fuji X mount while the shorter 22mm is for the micro 4/3rd mount.

“Sol 45 opens up a new creative experience for those who want to dip their toes in the Lensbaby pool,”
“Sol inspires visual artists to find new and fun ways to see their world by creating unique images in camera – no filters needed.”
Both lenses have a fixed aperture at f/3.5 and feature 2 moving bokeh blades.
The 45mm version of the lens is on sale currently while the 22mm is expected to ship in September. Both retail at $199.95.
