Lomography Press Release
For Mirrorless Full-Frame Sony E, Canon RF and Nikon Z Mounts
We are thrilled to introduce our latest Art Lens: The Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 designed specifically for the growing full-frame mirrorless systems, a fierce toolkit for every modern photographer and filmmaker! So what’s so crazy about this lens?
You can now choose between a brass design vintage look, with a knob stepless aperture control or an aluminium design, with a stepless aperture ring for a more Contemporary feel.
For even greater control over the bokeh, we added a dedicated bokeh control ring, which enables adjustment in seven levels.
You can now adjust focus and f-stop while the camera is rolling and easily integrate the Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 into your filmmaker’s arsenal.
The aperture plates, coming with the lens, facilitate different shapes of bokeh for an even greater range of creativity.
In 2013, Lomography reinvented Joseph Petzval’s legendary optic for the modern SLR systems. After 6 years of fine tuning, Lomography is proud to introduce the Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 to the mirrorless world.
