Lomo Experimental Lens Kit For Micro Four Thirds Cameras



I love my Fujifilm X100S, but I’m sure glad I didn’t ditch my Micro Four Thirds Panasonic when I bought it. Why? Because Micro Four Thirds is fast shaping up to be the iOS App Store of camera standards: if you want to make some cool hardware for a big market that will buy new things (hell, they bought into Micro Four Thirds already didn’t they?) then it’s the place to go.

Exhibit, uh… Where are we now? Exhibit D? Exhibit D is the Experimental Lens Kit from Lomo, a three lens kit for your Micro Four Thirds body that costs just $90.

In the box you get a 160-degree fisheye, a 12mm wide-angle and a 24mm prime, all with fixed-apertures. As if three plastic-fantastic lenses for $90 wasn’t enough, each one is equipped with it’s own shutter and filter slot, letting you add all kinds of weird colors, and also to perform multiple exposures on any Micro Four Thirds body (just lock the shutter open in “bulb” mode and trigger the shutter on the lens to add exposures.

This is the best kind of junk from Lomo: Cheap and fun accessories that you can use with a good digital camera. You don;t need film to get all grungy, and who wants to use film these days anyway? (Answer: not me. It sucks).

The kits are available now from Lomo’s online store, and in actual stores. EU buyers will pay €90 instead of $90, because the worlds hates us.
