Although a shorter focal length for the Petzval is exciting the biggest news is a new feature called the Bokeh Control Ring, which will allow photographers to adjust the amount of swirly bokeh effect that the lens is capable of producing. As we noted in our [Hands On] (http://www.popphoto.com/gear/2015/03/hands-lomography-petzval-lens)review of the original 85mm Lomography Petzval, achieving a perfect amount of the pretty circular bokeh that this style of lens is known for takes a bit of practice. The amount of bokeh present in a given image was related to the backgrounds you were shooting against and how much distance there was between camera and subject. The newly developed Bokeh Control Lens takes away some of the guesswork in capturing a desirable amount of bokeh. The adjustable ring changes the distance between the elements inside of the lens barrel and has has seven settings, Level 1 gives the most subtle bokeh while Level 7 gives a very high level of background swirl. Integrating a feature that will add a bit of precision to this analog-inspired lens seems like a very smart update for Lomography to make.
