The totally distinctive look of Petzval photos is all about the fantastic lens design that gives you the satisfaction of the instant optic experience that goes far beyond using photo editing software and filters. The New Petzval 85 Lens is the perfect portrait lens for when you want your photographic subject to be the centre of attention. Photos shot with the New Petzval 85 Lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Shoot with an open aperture for soft photos with strong bokeh, or close your aperture for super-sharp, clear images.

The Lomography New Petzval 85 Art Lens can create photos with truly beautiful Bokeh. Get it right and your shots will be bursting with wonderful out-of-focus areas. But to reach the level of swirly skill you aspire to, you must first learn Zen-like control over the lens and how best to get this amazing effect. Read these tips and you will be well on the way to Bokeh and other enlightenments!

After reading and hearing so many great things about the Petzval lens I went ahead and ordered mine. Finally my lens arrived and of course I went out a shot a couple of tests. Given, I need more practice but so far I love the results.

These were all shot at sunset at the largest aperture of F/2.2 for this lens.IMG_8034-PSD 12X18IMG_8071-PSD 12X18 copyIMG_8039-PSD 12X18IMG_8089-PSD 12X18 copyIMG_8032-PSD 12X18IMG_8061-PSD 12X18 copyIMG_8108-PSD 12X18IMG_8101-PSD 12X18 copy
