Lomo announces the first Petzval 55mm f/1.7 MKII Full Frame E-mount lens

Lomo announced their first Full Frame Petzval E-mount lens. Here is the press text:

New Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 MKII Brass

Sporting a solid, satin-finished exterior, the Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 is sure to turn heads and keep them turned for years to come. Available with Sony E, Canon RF and Nikon Z mounts!

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 adaptors.

Dual Aperture System
The brass edition features an 8-blade diaphragm aperture system regulated by a control knob, providing it with both authenticity and a vintage feel. On top it hosts a classic waterhouse aperture system allowing to tweak the bokeh with exceptional shapes.

Engineered Harmony
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.

Rest-assured with the New Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 brass edition, you will be in possession of an art lens of the highest quality. Known for their robustness and durability, brass lenses are sought-after for the classic aesthetic they embody. The Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 brass edition is no exception – sporting a solid, satin-finished exterior, it’s sure to turn heads and keep them turned for years to come.

Along with classic brass, the Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 comes in a brass coated with a sleek, painted-black finish, as well as the modern looking, black-anodized aluminum edition. All finishes are compatible with Canon RF, Nikon Z and Sony E mounts, be sure to choose the option that fits your equipment.

Impressive: Fuji launches first Medium Format mirrorless with IBIS and the new Sony 102MP sensor

Fuji marks history with their new GFX100 (specs and price info on BHphoto, Amazon and Calumet DE). It’s the first medium format camera with IBIS, BSI sensor, PDAF using the new Sony 102 Megapixel sensor. A spec comparison between the Fuji GFX100 and Sony A7rIII can be seen here.

This might be the first “general purpose use” Medium Format camera ever released. You can shoot it handheld, and even do some actions with it thanks to the fast AF. The camera has one major flaw which is the $10,000 price tag. I don’t know if that Image Quality difference compared to Full Frame can justify the price.

And surely this camera isn’t easy to carry around if you compare it with the Sony A7rIII:

Just a reminder: Sony once officially said their GM lenses can resolve 100MP FF sensors. One day the A7rIV or A7V will have a 100MP sensor too!
