I always try something new. This time it is a Petzval, although I do not think much of Swirly-Bokeh.
In fact, I do not like it at all. But oddly, that is exactly what inspires me to try it.
The unknown and unloved makes me somehow curious.

I think I'll get it in 1-2 weeks.

Do you also have some experience with it?

Another thing I would like to get. It's on my buy when you win the lottery list.

Congrats!

Thanks, Dennis.

I almost bought one of these a few months ago but could not make it to the seller. I would love to know your thoughts on the lens!

This Petzval is really very sharp, but it takes some practice to understand the appropriate combination of aperture and the bokeh-control. I'm still working on it, but it's a lot of fun.
I just never know exactly where I should go with all the individual apertures ...   :unsure:
