We are pleased to announce that the Lomography Petzval 85 art lens is now on sale at FilmNeverDie! But you must hurry, this will not last long. Pick it up for Canon or Nikon mount now.
A Very Special Portrait Lens
Manufactured in Russia by Zenit, the Lomography New Petzval 85 Art Lens is a stunning reinvention of one of the greatest lenses of all time. Each lens is crafted from brass and features high-quality glass optics that produce images with extreme sharpness, strong color saturation, artful vignetting and absolutely beautiful swirly bokeh backgrounds. For the first time ever, you can easily get the Petzval’s photographic look with Canon EF or Nikon F mount analogue and digital cameras. The lens offers both photographers and filmmakers the chance to shoot truly unique photographs and videos.
Special Lens Design
Most modern lenses are designed to minimize field curvature, so you’ll have the whole image in focus. However, the Petzval lens design gives its photos a totally different optical effect. You’ll get an area which is very sharp at the focus of the photograph over a narrow field. Next, there is progressive vignetting towards the non-focused areas, which helps draw the viewer’s attention to the crisp and focused area of the photograph, making it perfect for portraits where you want your subject to be in the center of attention.
