Early last year, Lomography launched its then-new Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter. The funding campaign was successful, and Lomography has decided to release a new version of the lens because of that success: the Chrome Plated Edition. The chrome plating lends the Art Lens a 'classic, timeless look' that is 'stunning on both analogue and digital cameras,' according to Lomography.

The Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens offers an F2.9 to F16 aperture range alongside a 64mm focal length, minimum 0.5m focusing distance, and construction that features 2 elements in 1 group. This particular lens model was designed by Lomography based on the lens used with the Daguerreotype camera in 1839; it includes a Waterhouse Aperture Plate and can be used for effects ranging from 'silky soft focus' to 'crisp sharp shots.'

The Chrome Plated version of the lens is being offered in Nikon F and Canon EF mounts, though Lomography notes that support expands beyond those with the use of adapters. The lens is available now through Lomography's online store as well as Gallery Stores across the world for $499/€499.
