The Lomography x Zenit 85mm f/2.2 Petzval Lens for Canon is a reinvention of the classic Petzval first conceived in Vienna in 1840. This updated version for the digital age is made in Russia and crafted from brass and high-quality glass optics. The lens is famous for its unique "swirly bokeh" backgrounds while maintaining sharpness in the center despite a very narrow depth-of-field. The result can be stunning for both photographers and filmmakers. This lens is for you if you like manual tinkering. You must manually switch out your aperture using included plates, there are no electronic contacts, and you must use manual focus. An excellent viewfinder or using Live View is recommended when trying to achieve focus on this lens using the wider aperture plates and your subject needs to be in center frame to achieve your greatest sharpness. This lens is ideal for patient experimenters, fine art photography, and portrait photography.
