As usual for Lomography, the Lomogon is being launched on crowd-funding site Kickstarter. The campaign has already achieved its $100,000 funding - but those who pledge to buy the lens between now  and 29 March can buy the prime at prices that rise from $299 to $500.

As well as the gold-coloured brass option, there is also an all-black version for those who want something that blends in better with their camera. This is the tenth time that Lomography has successfully launched a new product through Kickstarter. 

The manual-focus Lomogon is constructed from six elements in six groups. It is available in Nikon F and Canon EF fits, but can be used with a wide range of mirrorless cameras using adapters available direct from Lomography.

The lens is said to produce circular bokeh and the characteristic high-contrast, high color and vignetting that is typical of old Russian cameras and lenses.

Designed in collaboration with Zenit the lens promises “a celebration of the Lomography aesthetic, the Lomogon brings the iconic look of the legendary Lomo LC-A camera to SLRs and mirrorless cameras. Expect the bold contrast, sweet saturation, and moody vignetting that you love – with stunning optic quality, cutting-edge precision and higher than ever resolution.”
