The First Petzval Designed for Mirrorless
We are introducing the first Petzval Art Lens built specifically for full-frame mirrorless cameras. Coming standard with mounts for Canon RF, Nikon Z and Sony E - the New Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 has been streamlined with a robust, modern build quality and requires no pesky adapters.
Dual Aperture System
A new stepless aperture ring operating an 8-blade diaphragm aperture gives the lens huge versatility alongside its ease of use. The aperture diaphragm and long-throw focusing ring combine to make this incredibly adaptable to the filmmakers arsenal. On top it hosts a classic waterhouse aperture system allowing to tweak the bokeh with exceptional shapes.
Featuring a new bokeh control ring, improved optic design and dual aperture system - you can manually manipulate your shots to achieve any desired style. The New Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 offers reliability and top-tier professional quality without sacrificing its vintage styling.
A Tribute to Joseph Petzval’s Legacy
Preserving the vintage quality and feel while boasting the uniformity and compatibility of present-day technology, we’ve combined the legendary 180 year old aesthetic with the dependability of today’s lenses.
Improved Bokeh Control - Deliciously Dreamy to Strikingly Sharp
Rather than changing the aperture to modify the bokeh effect, the New Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 includes a dedicated bokeh control ring - an improvement that gives this lens more flexibility than any other traditional lens.
Coming in a fresh, modern finish the New Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 aluminum edition in anodized black is a clean, professional choice to complement your set-up. This matte black lens is shrouded in an aura of elegance and is sure to make a lovely pairing with the latest gear in photography and filmmaking.
Along with aluminum in anodized black, the New Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 comes in a brass coated with a sleek, painted-black finish, as well as in the solid, satin finished brass edition. All finishes are compatible with Canon RF, Nikon Z and Sony E mounts, be sure to choose the option that fits your equipment.
