This art lens is designed to allow full creative flexibility, with its 7 levels of Bokeh Control and Dual Aperture system. 

The Petzval 55mm f/1.7 MK II will be available in Sony E, Canon RF and Nikon Z mounts, and shipping is expected to start in July or August 2019. It will be available in 3 colours - brass (£399), black brass (£449) or black aluminium (£349). 

From Lomography:

Bokeh or Not Bokeh : The Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 is characterized by an optic that makes this lens perfect for attaining crystal clarity, even alongside its signature swirly bokeh. The improved design, with a maximum aperture of f/1.7, allows strongly contrasting images at smaller apertures but also provides a subtle, almost painterly rendering at larger apertures. For even greater control, we added a dedicated bokeh control ring, which enables the adjustment of the bokeh in seven levels.

Freedom of Creativity with the Dual Aperture System: The lens gives you great freedom, not only because of the speed and versatility of the stopless aperture diaphragm but also because you can integrate special aperture plates through the Waterhouse Aperture System. The aperture plates, coming with the lens, facilitate different shapes of bokeh for an even greater range of creativity.

The New Filmmaker Favourite: With the expanding video performance features of prevailing mirrorless cameras, we recognised the need to make the Petzval 55 mm f/1.7 more versatile and adaptable for filmmakers than ever before. Sporting a new long-throw focusing ring and stopless aperture diaphragm you can now seamlessly adjust focus and f-stop while the camera is rolling.

We got hands-on with the Lomography Lomogon 32mm f/2.5 Art lens, made with ZENIT in Russia, at TPS this year.
