An Ongoing Legacy

Just like its predecessor, the 1958 Russar, the New Russar+ is a 20mm wide-angle lens with a maximum aperture of f/5.6. This exciting reinvention showcases a host of new features for modern day shooting. The New Russar+ is now multi-coated to reduce flare and surface reflection and has a modified lens tube construction that is compatible with L39 and M mount cameras, and lots more using adapter mounts.

High Quality Manufacturing

The New Russar+ is handmade and features a beautifully complex symmetrical internal construction. Although very compact, it contains 6 lens elements in 4 groups. Thanks to their years of technical expertise in developing premium, high-quality optics, the team at Zenit was able to produce this technically advanced lens! The New Russar+ design utilizes the benefits from its new-moon shaped front and rear elements to achieve almost distortion-free photos and excellent vignetting control. In addition, the lens has fantastic distortion control at less than 0.1%. This means that the photos it produces are a near perfect representation of reality with a great evenness of illumination and resolution.

Ready for any kind of adventures, this special wide-angle lens will inspire you to get creative as soon as you attach it to your camera. The Russian glass used in the New Russar+ produces super-sharp images filled with vibrant colors, vignettes and contrasts, bursting with the unique character and quality that only a lens manufactured using the finest Russian glass can bring. The New Russar+ has an excellent distortion control to avoid barrel and pincushion distortions, making your shots an impressive mirror of reality.

With a wider view, the New Russar+ is great for shooting outdoor landscapes. The lens effortlessly soaks up the whole scene using its 20mm angle of view, producing sweeping, majestic photos filled with a truly authentic and unique personality. This prime lens is great for those up-close-and-personal portraits in corners, cars and cockpits. With creativity and the New Russar+ by your side, who knows what kind of fantastic shots you will achieve?
