If a low f/stop with plenty of bokeh is how you like to shoot your photos, take a look at this Kickstarter project for the new Petzval. Originally invented in 1840, this stunning looking lens is being "reloaded" for 2013 by Lomography and Zenit, making it compatabile with the mount of modern DSLR cameras. This lens is extremely manual, with f/stops you literally slide in and out yourself.
The original Petzval lens was invented in 1840 and is one of the very first and greatest lenses of all time; by supporting us on Kickstarter, you can help us reinvent this fantastic lens for Canon EF and Nikon F (D)SLR mount cameras in the 21st century. With the Lomography Petzval Portrait Lens, for the first time ever you can easily get the unique Petzval photographic look with 35mm analogue cameras and DSLR cameras. You can even shoot Petzval movies using DSLR cameras!
