True to the 1840 design by Joseph Petzval, this lens reveals striking separation between your subject and their background with delicious twisty, swirly blur. Shooting at bright apertures delivers subtle vignette bringing extra attention to anything you place within the large central area of focus for a timeless, vintage look. As you stop down the area of focus gets larger while still creating subtle swirling at the edges.
