The Daguerreotype Achromat Art lens

Canon EF, Nikon F or Pentax K SLR mounts

The Daguerreotype Achromat is inspired by the world’s first photographic optic lens, invented by Charles Chevalier in the 19th century. In 2014, we reworked it as a powerful tool for modern-day photographers and cinematographers. Now, we’re bringing you the Chrome Plated edition. With an elegant finish that protects it from wear and tear, it’s built for the free spirits who can’t put it down.

Celebrating the great return of dreamy imagery, you can alternate between razor-sharp images, or drape your world in silky soft focus. Control depth of field in a whole new way – with endless bokeh effects and the brand new Lumière and Aquarelle Waterhouse Aperture Plates. Master light, diverse moods, and dramatic special effects.
