Lomography has announced their new Petzval 55mm F1.7 MKII lens and the first lens that the company has designed and built for full-frame mirrorless cameras.
The lens features an 8-blade diaphragm aperture system which is controlled by a knob. Lomography says this provides it with both authenticity and a vintage feel. On top it hosts a classic waterhouse aperture system allowing you to tweak the bokeh manually to manipulate your shots to achieve any desired style.
Along with Sony E-mount, the lens is also available to pre-order in Canon RF and Nikon Z mounts. There are 3 different designs available to choose from: black brass, satin-finish brass and black anodized aluminum for $499, $449 and $399, respectively.
The first aluminum lenses should start shipping in July 2019, with the brass version following not too long after in August 2019.
Further details, sample images and pre-orders can be found on Lomography’s website.
