Lomography announced a new Petzval 55mm f/1.7 Art lens for mirrorless cameras


Lomography announced a new Petzval 55mm f/1.7 Art lens for mirrorless cameras - this is Lomography's first Petzval lens designed for full-frame mirrorless cameras:


The First Petzval Art Lens Designed for Mirrorless: Available in satin finished or black painted brass or in black anodized aluminum, it comes standard for Sony E, Canon RF and Nikon Z mounts.

Bokeh or Not Bokeh : The Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 is characterized by an optic that makes this lens perfect for attaining crystal clarity, even alongside its signature swirly bokeh. The improved design, with a maximum aperture of f/1.7, allows strongly contrasting images at smaller apertures but also provides a subtle, almost painterly rendering at larger apertures. For even greater control, we added a dedicated bokeh control ring, which enables the adjustment of the bokeh in seven levels.

Freedom of Creativity with the Dual Aperture System: The lens gives you great freedom, not only because of the speed and versatility of the stopless aperture diaphragm but also because you can integrate special aperture plates through the Waterhouse Aperture System. The aperture plates, coming with the lens, facilitate different shapes of bokeh for an even greater range of creativity.

The New Filmmaker Favorite : With the expanding video performance features of prevailing mirrorless cameras, we recognized the need to make the Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 more versatile and adaptable for filmmakers than ever before. Sporting a new long-throw focusing ring and stopless aperture diaphragm you can now seamlessly adjust focus and f-stop while the camera is rolling.

Estimated Delivery:
Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 black anodized aluminum: July 2019
Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 brass and black painted brass: August 2019
