i guess it means that the lomo-folks saw a niche and decided to fill it ?
you don't need to go to any exotic photography forum or search very hard on
ebay to see that photographers ( numeric or analogue ) enjoy using eye bleedingly sharp lenses
as well as those that are from a bygone era. the lensbaby people made their own version of
one of the greatest portrait lenses ever formulated ( 6-7 years ago ? ) so why not lomo and a petzval ?
plenty of people spent silly money on old ones. i guess crowd sourcing is the way of the future
both to test public interest AND to get $$$ ..
