Photos shot with a Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect at the non-focused areas. Expect strong color saturation, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field.
The New Lomography Petzval Lenses will be manufactured by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. They are built from brass and feature premium glass optics. We already have a first working sample of the new Petzval Lens and are very excited by the results. However, we need your support so that we can finalize the lens design and fund the first production of new lenses. Let’s bring back this incredible art lens for a whole new generation of photographers and filmmakers in the 21st century!
