    Is there anyone who knows how Russians designed Lomo cinema lenses ?
    Is it possible to reach their archives ? Do they still produce the same glasses ?
    And how many pages of notes are there per lens ? Is it possible to order from a lens manufacturer archive all papers in dvd format ?

    Best ,

    Mustafa, ask LOMO. I doubt they'll give you anything for free but asking is cheap.

    p.s., I just used Google and found crude descriptions of some of them. Why don't you do the same? Don't be so lazy.

    Patience, Mustafa, patience. Not that they'll give you what you want for free.

    Hi Mustafa,

    I found this site with a quick search for lomo cine lens

    http://www.geocities.com/kinor35/lenses/lens.htm

    it has some basic diagrams and graphs but it says you can get more detailed information by emailing. Hope that helps!
