After my first post on the Petzval lens open box and hands on review, this is the continuation. This is the second received lens, the so-call Special Edition, Lens in Black color version.
I received this lens on early of May-14, which is after 8 months of long waiting.
If you are looking for the result photos from this lens, feel free to visit my post of Petzval photos collection.

All the freebies that come in the box, which includes camera strap, waterhouse plates (with special shape aperture opening), appreciation note, user manual, warranty card, the Petzval lens in black, cleaning cloth, leather pouch, cotton bag and also Petzval prints in the envelop.
The Petzval crafting on the lens and the focus distance indicator which screwed on the lens body.
The mechanical parts and design which make the lens looks classical and cool.
The large headed focusing knob screw. The focusing experience was really smooth and steady. It stops at the place where you want it to be without jiggling.
The screw structure on the lens which give the lens a nice vintage look.
The Petzval crafting on the metal brass. This crafting actually located on the brass metal lens hood, which is removable as well.
