Petzval Portrait Lens Reloaded

From the makers of the Lomo retro film camera comes a project to update the Petzval design of portrait lenses and bring it into the DSLR age. The Lomography Petzval is an 85mm f2.2 lens featuring a solid brass exterior, gear-rack driven focus and a very unique bokeh effect thanks to the use of Waterman aperture stops. If you love shallow DoF and manual focusing, you will stand out with this lens. Coming soon in Nikon F and Canon EF mounts.
