180 years on from Joseph Petzval’s groundbreaking original
Celebrating the 180th anniversary of Petzval’s iconic invention, the Lomography Petzval 80.5 mm f/1.9 MK II Art Lens, not only stays true to the optics and materials of early photography, it also allows for creative experimentation like never before, opening wide the doors to filmmakers too.
A Filmmaker’s Dream
The New Petzval 80.5 MKII Art Lens has a helicoid focusing mechanism and stopless aperture diaphragm, that enables you to focus and f-stop, whilst the camera is rolling.
A Watercolor Bokeh
The unique Petzval optic design renders photos with a totally different optical effect. It provides velvety watercolor Bokeh when shot wide open. When stopped down to smaller apertures, the lens displays extreme sharpness across the frame.
Seven Levels of Swirl
Rather than changing the aperture to modify the Bokeh effect, The New Petzval 80.5 mm f/1.9 MKII Advanced Bokeh Control Edition features a Bokeh Control ring, allowing you to adjust the amount of swirl over 7 levels, for even greater experimentation.
A Dual Aperture System
The New Petzval 80.5 MKII Art Lens features not only a stopless aperture diaphragm but also a Waterhouse Aperture System for endless creativity. Through the insertion of special aperture plates of different shapes, you will have the ability to produce rich and patterned backgrounds.
