Lomography Launched New Russar+ Lens for L39 and M Mount Cameras
Today Lomography has announced their newest product and member of the Lomography Art Lens family, the New Russar+, a rebirth of the legendary 1958 Russar MR-2!
Designed by Lomography and manufactured in Russia by Zenit, this stunning brass-bodied and chrome plated super wide-angle lens is a pioneering update on the 1958 Russar, which was the first ever 20mm in screw mount. The Russar+ uses the same groundbreaking optical scheme by renowned optics designer M. M. Rusinov, making it the perfect embodiment of all modern non SLR super wide-angle lenses.
The New Russar+ has high-quality Russian optics for sharp photos full of warm, vibrant colors, vignettes and bursting with unique character. With a 20mm focal length, the Russar+ is perfect for street photography, architectural shots and landscapes. Here are some sample photos taken with the New Russar+.
The New Russar+ is now available for pre-order in the Lomography online shop, and will be released in July 2014.
