Lensbaby Announces New Sweet 22 Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

22 February 2024

Lensbaby has announced a new version of its Sweet 22 pancake lens featuring "the smallest sweet spot with the most blur outside the sweet spot of any Lensbaby lens." The mirrorless-only compact lens also features a metal body and can focus five inches from the front element.

"The compact, tack-sharp, centered sweet spot created by the Sweet 22 gives a sense of motion to still images while creating dramatic focus transitions of moving subject matter coming into or out of the Sweet 22's sweet spot when shooting video," the company said.


Highlights of the new lens include:

  • Metal body
  • Close focus to five inches
  • Neutral density filter included
  • Zippered clamshell case and lenscloth


Specifications, admittedly sparse, for the pancake lens include:

Mount Canon RF, Fujifilm X, Nikon Z, Sony E, Leica L
Focal Length 22mm
Angle of View 90°
Minimum Focus 5.0
Autofocus No
Image Stabilization No


The Sweet 22 is available now from Lensbaby for $222.95.
