Lomography Z250 overview

  • 1Description

An update to a classic, the New Russar+ 20mm f/5.6 Art Lens from Lomography is a wide-angle, manual focus prime characterized by is unique optical design. Utilizing a symmetrical six elements in four groups layout, with moon-shaped front and rear elements, this lens is able to produce truly wide-angle imagery with little distortion or vignetting. The glass elements are also multi-coated to prevent flare, ghosting, and surface reflections in order to maintain high contrast and neutral colors when working in bright lighting conditions. Benefitting the optical assets, the lens features a chrome-plated brass physical construction for durability and has an M39 screw mount. A Leica M mount lens adapter is also included for greater flexibility as to the range of cameras this lens is compatible with. Maintaining the character of the 1958 Russar, yet updated to suit modern image-making requirements, the New Russar+ is versatile and fun prime pairing optical quality with a sleek and configurable design.

This wide-angle prime features an M39 screw mount and is compatible with 35mm rangefinder cameras. Included with the lens is an M39 to M-mount adapter, which makes the lens compatible for use with M-mount rangefinder cameras, and triggers cameras' built-in 28mm frame lines when available. The lens is also uncoupled and requires zone focusing techniques for use.
Reminiscent of the classic Russar lens, this modern version shares the same symmetrical six elements in four groups optical design with unique crescent-shaped front and rear elements. This design helps to significantly reduce distortion, prevent vignetting, and maintain even illumination across the frame.
Multi-coated optics help to control lens flare and ghosting in order to gain greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Manual focus control is benefitted by a printed distance scale on the side of the barrel, and manual aperture control is available via a front-facing ring from f/5.6 to f/22.
The lens body is constructed from chrome-plated brass that is durable and also completes an overall aesthetic appearance.
