Excited what the engraving on your new Petzval (D)SLR art lens will probably look like? Here's a sneak peek!
We previously showed you a mock-up of how we planned for the engraving on the Petzval lens to look. Since then, we have received an engraved prototype lens.

The engraving was made on a sample lens only, so please stay tuned for further engraving updates on more final lens samples.
Now we’re really excited!
