A Sleek and Fuss-Free Aperture Mechanism

The Lomogon is perfect for spontaneous shooting. Its vintage dial-styled aperture mechanism lets you switch through apertures – from f/2.5 to f/11 –with an intuitive click-and-stop feeling.

The Russians are Coming!

I thought we were pissed at the Russians? Guess not. The Lomogon was developed together with the illustrious Russian manufacturer Zenit and assembled with the finest glass optics in a small factory in Central China. The gold brass design is a nod to billowing sails, caravels, and golden compasses; the sleek black design lets you blend into your new adventure. The Lomogon will be available in Canon EF and Nikon F mounts and compatible with numerous other bodies with adaptors available from Lomography.
