I was very surprised opening up the newest Lomography remake - the Russar 20mm f/5.6 Leica Screw mount lens. I was expecting the kind of dull workmanship of the original. Instead I found a wonderfully boxed lens which appears to have outstanding craftsmanship. Those crafty Lomography people are certainly working had to get Leica owner's rubles ... make that dollars for the US.
This is a very nicely done lens. Something to make your Leica sit up on its Hermes cushion and take notice.
Never heard of the Russar? Well once upon a time in 1958 the crafty Ruskies won the Grand Prize at the Brussels World's fair with the original MR Russar 20mm f/5.6 lens design. Small and compact, it was pretty hot for a 1958 super wide angle Leica screw mount lens. You can read its interesting story here on the Lomography site.
This is a brand new updated and improved 2015 version.
The Russar was, and is, a scale focused super wide (not rangefinder coupled) in Leica Screw Mount. It is happily factory provided with an official screw mount to M adapter. You will find some nice sample images here
And so the MR Russar was originally designed for any Leica Screw Mount camera or M mount camera by adding the M adapter.
With the wonders of the so called mirrorless cameras it is also easily adaptable to the Sony Alpha 7 series, FujiX series, and M43 Panasonic a Olympus camera via the appropriate adapter.
