    New Petzval Lens for Nikon F and Canon EF

    I definitely want one of these... I don't think it's gimmicky, either.

    Last year I bought a vintage 1870s Darlot Petzval, a very tiny ~90mm one. I had SK Grimes make a Nikon F-mount for it. It's pretty cool! I shoot it on my D7100.

    No big lomography fan, but that looks pretty cool. I love the fact they're using a brass barrel, although the block around the focus drive is kind of chunky. The kickstarter price is very reasonable--this is tempting.

    The $300 price is gone, but the $350 level may still be available...

    I'm no fan of the lomography aura, their marketing, etc. But this looks like a nice product at a realistic price! It's even a good focal length for 35, showing the character of a Petzval without the exaggerated and nauseating swirlies (spewies?) that many get by using too short a lens for their format.
    As much as I dislike admitting it, I like the thing!

    (But I'm not getting rid of my 105 Nikkor)

    This is great news. I am looking to buy Petzval for some time...actually I was ready to buy Rollei SL66 to use it just with Petzval.

    The "New" Petzval lens?

    Here's a new reincarnation of the Petzval. I think they're made for DSLRs.

    If it fills full frame "sensors", then it'll be fine for 35mm Nikon and Canon bodies.
