The Daguerreotype Achromat is a 64mm manual art lens for Nikon F mount, Canon EF mount or Pentax K mount D/SLRs. Dreamy soft focus and unique bokeh textures are among its special optical effects.

Celebrating the great return of dreamy imagery, you can alternate between razor-sharp images, or drape your world in silky soft focus. The Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens has a focal length of 64 mm and a classic Waterhouse Aperture system ranging from f/2.9 to f/16 and featuring specially designed plates to produce deep, textured backgrounds rarely achieved in photography.

The optical construction has been redesigned from the original, so that you can enjoy ethereal soft focus from apertures below f/4, or razor-sharp definition with deep contrasts from f/5.6 onwards.
