“Petzval-like” portrait lens to be announced next week by a new German company


I received this partial image of a new portrait lens that will be officially announced next week. The lens does have some similarities with the Lomography Petzval lens, but I was told that it will be produced by a new German company. The lens body is styled after a vintage brass lens but is actually going to be high-end aluminum with a brass-like oxidization. Inside the lens will have a new modern design and will be available in different mounts, including Nikon F and Leica M. The lens will probably be produced in Wetzlar, Germany.

Stay tuned for additional info. The official announcement should be on Tuesday next week.

Update: the lens is now officially announced.
