Third party lenses for Nikon Z-mount: Lomography Petzval 55mm f/1.7 and Viltrox 20mm/1.8



Sebastian from the Nikon Z Facebook group writes about the Lomography Petzval 55mm f/1.7 Art full-frame mirrorless lens for Nikon Z-mount:

Petzval 55 with Z mount showed up, wow, solid lens, craftsmanship is incredible, The lens has a rear focus ring and then in the front is a bokeh control ring that allows you to build the bokeh, and in the middle is the aperture control, plus there is a slot that one can add additional bokeh rings to modify the bokeh shape. This lens will take some time to decide my usage, but sure is nice to be a native Z mount.


Steffen from the Nikon Z Facebook group on the Viltrox 20mm/1.8 full-frame mirrorless lens for Nikon Z-mount:

Viltrox 20mm/1.8, it‘s a bargain! My new copy 355 Euros (tax included), smooth manual focus ring, de-clicked aperture ring, native z mount, dreamy Bokeh, low CA, moderate distortion, even perfect for drama portraits with minimum distance of 0.25 m (check test pics in comments), not too long and well balanced with Meike grip, full metal jacket and built like a tank, even both lens hoods are not plastic (!) and the shorter hood takes 82mm filters ! Baam! It‘s a keeper!

Ending tomorrow:
