While we agree that saying “lomography” and “experimental” is redundant, this time our curiosity got the best of us, so we were able to spend a few days playing -this is the word that had to be used- with these new lenses for Micro Four Thirds cameras .
The guys at Lomography have decided to approach the digital market timidly with three objectives which, as the name warns, are all an experiment. So don’t expect the ordinary and forget everything you’re used to, this is Lomography and they have their own rules. And here, plastic -in case anyone expected metal-made lenses- is the norm.
The experiment in question is a lens (equivalent to 24 mm), a fun-looking circular fisheye (160 degree coverage) and a more conventional standard lens (48 mm), which you can use an internal filter with (included in the kit); all of this to make you capable of producing the weirdest and most creative-looking results.
The group formed by these three objectives costs about 90 Euros, and it goes without saying that it is only suitable for long time fans of the guys at Lomography. That doesn’t me we –who aren’t exactly fans- didn’t have a great time using them.
