Based on the older Russar MR-2, the Lomography 20mm f5.6 lens is a stunning brass-bodied prime with significant design improvements for use with Leica L39/M analogue cameras and digital mirrorless cameras. This ultra-wide 20mm lens allows you to capture everything around you from stunning perspectives and is a great tool for architectural work, landscapes travel and street photography. The 20mm Russar+ Art produces super-sharp images filled with vibrant colours, vignettes and contrasts, bursting with the unique character and quality. The lens also has excellent distortion control to avoid barrel and pincushion distortions.

Just like its predecessor, the New Russar+ is a 20mm wide angle lens with a maximum aperture of f/5.6. In addition, 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 so that it is compatible with L39 and M mount cameras, so it can be used with a large range of digital and analogue cameras.

The New Russar+ is handmade and features a beautifully complex symmetrical internal construction. Despite having an incredibly compact design, it contains 6 lens elements in 4 groups. The new-moon shaped outer elements are especially difficult to manufacture and integrate within the lens design. In the premium optics industry, lens elements are manufactured by cutting glass blocks into small bricks, and then polishing them to the very specifically required shapes. Thus, elements with a small radius, which have a deep recessed concave shape and are slim like the New Russar+ are very difficult to produce in a precise way. Very few lenses nowadays have this complex design structure. Thankfully, with their years of technical experience developing premium, high-quality optics, the team at Zenit are more than capable of producing 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. the new russar+ also has fantastic 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. Our Art Lens also has excellent distortion control to avoid barrel and pincushion distortions, making your shots a fantastic mirror of reality.

With a wider view, the New Russar+ is great for shooting fantastic outdoor landscapes, effortlessly soaking up the whole scene using its 20mm angle of view and producing sweeping, majestic and filled with a truly authentic and unique personality. This prime lens is also 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.

Credit is subject to application and status. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photographic act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.

Can I repay early? If so how?

No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.

What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?

Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.

What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?

Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
