New (Old) Lomography Art Lens

Toronto. Katherine Phipps from Lomography sent me an email last month. The company plans to offer a two element in one group f/2.9, 64mm brass lens with waterhouse stops.

The lens is named a Daguerrian achromat and signed as a Chevalier lens although to me the f/2.9 aperture is more reminiscent of Petzval’s Voigtlander camera lens aperture.

The lens is intended for the digital cameras and will be offered in Canon EF or Nikon F mounts, both easily converted to fit mirrorless cameras via a suitable adaptor.

You can learn more from the American press and marketing documents here (first impressions) and here (press release).
