The Lomography Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens is designed to seamlessly work with a whole new generation of cameras. We’ve reinvented the science of centuries-old optics to revolutionize modern day photography.
The original Petzval lens was a revolutionary invention. It was designed specifically to shoot portraits, and helped pave the way for commercial photography. And in the same way that Joseph Petzval staged a milestone back in 1840 when he designed the lens, the brand new Lomography Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens promises to do the same in the 21st Century by giving you truly incredible effects on a whole range of modern SLR cameras.
The Lomography Petzval (D)SLR Art Lens is designed to seamlessly work with a whole new generation of cameras. We’ve reinvented the science of centuries-old optics to revolutionize modern day photography while still staying true to the trademark Petzval look and effect.
The new Lomography Petzval lens has great color saturation and high contrast. The resolution of the focused area of each photo is extremely high. Thanks to the new and improved Petzval optical design, the Lomography Lens has a large f/2.2 maximum aperture; it’s very hard to find older Petzval lenses which have an aperture larger than f/3.5. Because of the large aperture of the new lens, you’ll get photos with a very narrow depth of field, and when shooting with the aperture wide open, you’ll get a beautiful vignetting effect in your shots. It’s the ideal portrait lens!

His work has the anachronistic charm of hand-tinted photographs and the trippy flavor of rock. Sometimes too his portraits of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Parker and Jim James cross over to the territory of graphic design and pop art, skewing definitions of what a picture is.
