This is a particular portrait lens:

The Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens is a reinvention of one of the first and greatest lenses of all time. Manufactured in Russia by Zenit, each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass and features high-quality glass optics. The lens produces images with extreme sharpness, strong color saturation, artful vignetting and absolutely beautiful swirly bokeh. Because of the characteristic swirly bokeh effect that it produces, the New Petzval Lens is perfect for portraits where you want your subject to be the center of attention. The lens is a reinvention of the legendary 19th century optical design of Joseph Petzval; with the New Petzval, for the first time ever you can easily get the Petzval photographic look with Canon EF and Nikon F mount analogue and digital cameras.
