Lomography X Zenit 85mm F/2.2 Petzval Brass Lens For Nikon F Mount {58} Description


The Lomography Zenit 85mm F/2.2 Petzval is a new version (or more accurately a re-invention) of the a famous antique portrait lens from Vienna, Austria circa 1840.  The Petzval produces unique images characteristically having a sharp crisp central area with very distinctive swirly bokeh and progressive vignetting towards the non-focused areas.  Instead of a conventional aperture diaphragm, the Petval has a slot for interchangeable aperture plates.  Using a drop-in aperture plate not only changes how much light and depth of field is available, it allows custom aperture shapes; when using non circular apertures, cones of defocused light combine with unusual results.

The 'New' Petzval 85mm Lens uses premium glass optics and is manufactured in Russia by Zenit, a company with a long and distinguished history in lens design.  With it's swirly bokeh effect and flattering focal length the New Petzval 85 Lens is perfect for portraits.  The lens helps photographers stand out by making portrait subjects the center of attention.
