No, Minolta had a 100mm lens with a built in softening filter with variable steps of softening. Great lens but it's discontinued now.

Minolta made a A-mount 100mm F/2.8 Soft Focus lens which had a dialable spherical aberation. at 0 it was very sharp and 1 softer 2 softer 3 very soft.

If you liked the look for portraits it is great.

But as always, YMMV
