New 28mm f/6.3 MoMo Soft Focus Lens on Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...igital-cameras

A little background:
安原製作所 (yasuhara.co.jp) was famous for the 安原一式 Leica M39 mount rangefinder from 1999, a not widely-known contribute to the Rangefinder Renaissance. I haven't used/seen the camera in person but I've read mixed reviews of this camera. Anyway it's a good collection item today.

Seems an odd focal length for soft focus. But then, it's sort of the opposite of buying reliable M-series Leicas. Some people would rather pay quite a lot of money for a lens (or camera) of known poor (or at least idiosyncratic) quality instead of buying as many $5 pieces of junk as they can find, in the hope of getting something uniquely bad...

And indeed I have Lensbabies, a Monochrom Subjective and a Dreamagon.

Cheers,

R.
