Lomography has been on a roll with lots of their new art lenses, and the latest addition being announced today is their Jupiter 3+ LENS (1.5/50 L39/M). It’s a 50mm f1.5 lens that comes in both L39 screw mount and Leica M mount–very similar to the older Leica glass and some Voigtlander screwmount lenses. This lens a collaboration between Lomography and Zenit; and to that end the body is made of chrome plated brass with full glass optics. Because of the mount, it can be easily adapted to many other formats like Sony FE, Fujifilm X, Micro Four Thirds, etc.

It can focus as closely as 0.7m–which is an improvement over many other rangefinder and screwmount lenses. This lens is also rangefinder coupled; so if you’ve got an older Leica or Voigtlander Bessa-R then you can use it with the rangefinder working with no issues.

More tech specs and sample photos are after the jump. It’s launching today for a price point of $699.
