Keeping with the Lomography ethos, the lens embraces otherwise unwanted imperfections in the image making process and encourages us to experiment with its traditional yet unorthodox features for a contemporary lens. A dual aperture system allows you to choose between a conventional eight-bladed iris or a Waterhouse system in which different aperture inserts are used, enabling a broad range of aperture shapes to adorn the out of focus areas of your pictures. A bokeh control ring will cleverly move the front element to enhance or decrease field curvature as you see fit, giving your images a swirly bokeh that's become a signature of this lens. The manual focus ring features a long travel to benefit video capture.
