Lomography recently launched a new lens, the Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens Brass, chrome plated. This lens would be of interest to photographers!

Here are more information and details that you can check it out, let me share them with you from the press release information:

The Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens is a revival of the 1839 Chevalier Achromat Lens’ lost aesthetic.

Photographers and videographers can delve into an extensive variation of moods and special effects: silky soft focus at f/2.9, crisp sharp shots from f/5.6 onwards, and a focal length of 64mm with the Daguerreotype Achromat.

  • Back as a New Classic with an Exclusive Chrome Finishing: inspired by the incredible support the Daguerreotype Achromat received on Kickstarter in 2016, Lomography is launching a stunning chrome-plated edition.
  • The Ethereal Aesthetics of The World’s First Photographic Optic Lens: reviving an optical design from 1839 by Daguerre and Chevalier to offer crisp sharpness, silky soft focus, and freedom to control depth of field with multiple bokeh effects.
  • Premium Quality Craftsmanship of The Art Lens Family: designed and handcrafted in a small manufactory – reinvented for use with modern digital and analogue cameras in Canon EF and Nikon F mounts, and Pentax K mounts (Brass and Black finishing only).
