Hi all,

I am entering to large format again after many years of absence from the medium & now getting into it in a bit more arty approach... so many things are new to me, hence my need for help on the matter.

I would love to hear from experts & enthusiasts on the forum about some cool Petzval lenses that would be good for 4x5 format in the manner that is currently expected from Petzval - namely swirly bokeh.

Of course I would prefer some not so expensive lens but even those price ones are cool to be suggested

I would love to have a swirl on "head & shoulders" type of shots & some half figure shots too - so if different lenses would perform better on these two type of shots - please suggest. (Discussing those that will swirl & would not vignette on some totals / shots focused on infinity is welcome too).

I hope I am not asking too much & not discussing things already discussed.
