Tutorial Video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dU-CIgo26s 

These camera setups demonstrate Blender Cycle's full power to emulate a true imaging system and throw away its prospectively perfect default camera. 
Experience beautiful bokeh, the Petzval effect, and distortion loved by modern photographers that use vintage Prime lenses.
I don't think you'll want to go back.

This project started from the success of the Jackimorphic Camera Pack v1.0 found here: https://www.blendermarket.com/products/jackimorphic-camera-pack-v1   

Available Prime Lenses so Far:
-Fisheye 28mm (FREE!  Suffers heavy from Floating Point Error)
-RetroRocket 35mm 
-Helium420 58mm
- Nicotine 105mm 
- Nicotine 135mm (soft, struggles with sharp infinity)
There will be 5 of these lenses (each at different focal lengths) as I get time to make more. I will set up that a lens purchase will contribute to the full pack discount price, so please be patient. 


DEVELOPMENT/RESEARCH UPDATES:
.
-12/5/2022  Discovered that moving farther from the starting Zero position to large world coordinate value will dramatically affect the images with increased glaring and loss of contrast. I think this is  a mathematical issue with Blender using rounding OR a math issue where a bit size allocation is maxed out  or something.   For now, keep the camera within a reasonable distance from starting point, (0,0,0) (like within 10 meters all directions) and know the farther away, the more innacurate lens clouding.

Fisheye 28mm (FREE) 
Built this one up and decided to make it free, must remain close to (0,0,0) world origin location before heavy effects of the Floating Point Error mentioned above start affecting the image. 
FREE FREE FREE! yay. 




The Bokeh shape toward edges  (a denoiser will smooth it out a bit. Feel free to throw lens dust and dirt on the model!)

RetroRocket 35mm
A retrofocus design from long ago
Fast! about f2.5 with a great wideness for medium shots on characters, I like how this one turned out.

Helium420 58mm
This is the lens you are thinking of... ;)
The perfect vintage portrait lens. Beautiful DOF effects while maintaining a usable wide field of view for full frame sensors.

Experimenting with settings, getting really really damn close with the bokeh (minus dispersion for now)
