We can't get enough of shooting with the new Petzval Art Lens! Have a look at what went down when we got in front of that luscious Russian lens at the Lomography HQ ...

We then got the opportunity to chat with Martin Fetz who runs the organization about what they do and their experiences shooting with the Petzval.
If you loved the Petzval Lens, we have Joseph Petzval to thank for. The mathematician/inventor/physicist was born in Hungary, but spent most of his life in Vienna.

The New Petzval Lens 85 continues to captivate the hearts of many photographers from its debut a couple of years back.

Many photographers from both outside and inside the Lomography community have raved about the New Petzval 85. In this recap, we look back at four community-written reviews.
