Lomography has resurrected a lens from the glory days of rangefinder photography to bring fans a lens that has a super-fast performance and great low light abilities. 

The new Jupiter 3+ Art Lens, designed by Lomography and manufactured by Zenit in the same factory in Russia as the original lens, has a 50mm focal length and a fast f/1.5 maximum aperture. 

In addition to having a modified 0.7m closest focusing distance (an improvement from 1m on the original lens), the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens is directly compatible with L39 and M mount rangefinder and mirrorless digital cameras, as well as many more using adapter mounts.

The Jupiter 3+ Art Lens is constructed from chrome-plated solid brass, making it much more durable than the original Jupiter 3 lens, which was made out of aluminum.

The New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens is being produced in small batches and is available from the Lomography Online Shop for £499.00.


Jupiter 3+ Art Lens Specs:

  • Focal Length: 50mm
  • Aperture: f/1.5 - 1/22
