Lomography announced a new addition to its growing line up of art lenses: the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens.
This brass lens features a high quality Russian optical design, delivering sharp images with a “deeply strong color,” and offers a maximum aperture of f/1.9. While the Petzval 58 will be made in Canon EF and Nikon F mounts, it can be easily adapted to work with other systems, such as Sony or Olympus.
Englewood Camera is pleased to announce that we are currently offering the new Petzval 85mm f/2.2 lens from Lomography. Last year, Lomography launched a Kickstarter campaign to recreate a classic portrait lens, based off of 19th century design, for modern digital cameras. This campaign was largely successful, and Lomo started shipping these brass lenses in August 2014. We received our first shipment, and staffer Erin Brinkley-Burgardt took the lens out for testing over Labor Day weekend. For portrait photographers, the results are absolutely stunning.
