Photographers who enjoy the dreamlike Lomography look will be pleased to hear that the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens is back out in two new sleek black and silver color ways – or "Onyx Black" and "Silver Graphite" aluminium, if we're being completely accurate.

The Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens was first launched in 2016, and with a design inspired by the iconic 19th-century optical optical design of Daguerre and Chevalier, it was available in a brass or black-painted brass option. These two new finishes are made from anodized aluminum, and appear more subdued in nature, perhaps so that they pair seamlessly with today's analogue and DSLR cameras.
