New m43 Lens Yasuhara Momo 100 28mm f/6.4 Soft Focus


Poised to deliver creative soft focus imagery, the Momo 100 from Yasuhara is a 28mm f/6.4 lens designed for Micro Four Thirds system cameras, and provides a 56mm equivalent focal length. Characterized by its simple doublet optical design, this lens relies on spherical aberration to produce a soft and glowing image quality, while still delivering in-focus results, for an ethereal look. Softness can be adjusted by manually adjusting the aperture setting, and manual focus control is also available for working with subjects as close as 11.8″ away. Additionally, this lens is also characterized by its slim, pancake profile that measures just over 1″ long for portability and a sleek overall form factor.

  • This 28mm f/6.4 prime lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds system cameras where it provides a 56mm equivalent focal length.
  • A dedicated soft focus lens, this optic employs spherical aberration in order to produce a glowing, soft image quality while retaining focus. The amount of softness can be controlled by varying the aperture setting as well as balancing the depth of field to subject/focus distance ratio.
  • Measuring just over 1″ in length, this slim lens has a pancake profile that makes it ideal for creative travel or everyday shooting.
  • No electrical contacts are featured in the mount design, and this lens requires manual focus and exposure control.
