Hmmmmmm...this lens has some very unique Bokeh...quite different from my lensbaby lenses...actually a lot different.
I include two samples:
Building shot with Optic 80mm
Clock shot with Sweet 35mm
Can't say I am going to run out and buy a Petzval (I need to use the things that I already have!!! LOL!)...but the Petzval is definitely interesting. ..Based on the amount of support they have received on Kickstarter, a lot of people apparently like what they are seeing! Definitely warm and fuzzy.
I don't look at these types of lenses as novelty items...to me..they are tools...they may work for some shooters' style...but not for others...but more choices is always better, no? Looks like a fun piece of glass.
