The 56mm f/1.6 lens is inspired by classic portrait lenses from the mid-20th century and gives the photos a soft, dream-like texture and a macro feature lets you get close for sharp images with buttery smooth bokeh like the photo above. The lens comes in various mounts for Canon, Nikon, Sony, and Pentax cameras and mirrorless models are set for release in the next month or two. 

$499-$599, available now at
