Lomography unveils first Petzval art lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras

The Petzval 55mm f/1.7 MKII is available for Sony E, Canon RF and Nikon Z mount cameras

Lomography has announced the Petzval 55mm f/1.7 MKII lens, the first art lens from Lomography, designed specially for mirrorless cameras.

The lens features a bright f/1.7 aperture to creature its signature swirly bokeh and also has a dedicated bokeh control ring, allowing you to adjust bokeh in seven levels. Its dual aperture system allows you to use Lomography’s aperture plates through the Waterhouse aperture system, so you can create different shaped bokeh – it even comes with five aperture plates in the box!


The new design also features a long-throw focusing ring and stopless aperture diaphragm, making it a versatile lens for filmmakers who can adjust focus and f/stop while recording.

The Petzval 55mm f/1.7 MKII is available to pre-order now and comes in three colours: aluminium black, priced at £349; brass varnish, priced at £399 and brass black, priced at £499. The aluminium black lens has an estimated delivery of July, with the brass lenses estimated for August.
