A bold, beautiful & brimming- with-boleh resurrection from the zenith of russian optical design.

– A Resurrection of Planetary Proportions from the glory days of rangefinder photography
– Unsurpassed Character with super- fast performance and incredible low light ability
– Handcrafted Construction of solid chrome-plated brass and Russian glass optics
– Rich Russian Heritage based on the iconic Jupiter lens

Designed by the highly experienced Lomography team and manufactured by the expert technicians at the exact same Zenit factory in Russia as the original lens, the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens retains the strong character and Soviet spirit of its forbearer — crisp sharpness, smooth, natural colors and lush, dreamy bokeh — while transcending it in many ways. With substantial improvements on design and compatibility, Lomography is extremely proud to introduce the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens to their line of exquisitely handcrafted Lomography Art Lenses over half a century since the original Jupiter 3 lens was released.

Equipped with a versatile 50mm focal length and fast f/1.5 maximum aperture, the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens allows you to effortlessly capture every moment from portraits to everyday life. It has an outstandingly shallow depth of field at large apertures and yields stunning results in all kinds of settings, whether you’re shooting in low light or bright sunshine. Subjects will pop out from the frame while the defocused areas will be drenched in beautiful booked, resulting in an extremely unique image quality that makes this lens incredibly special and gives a character entirely its own!

With years of knowledge and experience, the skilled and dedicated team of technicians at the Zenit Factory in Russia has produced the lens to the highest quality. In addition to having a modified 0.7m closest focusing distance (an improvement from 1m on the original lens), the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens is directly compatible with L39 and M mount rangefinder and mirrorless digital cameras, as well as many more using adapter mounts. Constructed from chrome-plated solid brass, the New Jupiter 3+ Art Lens is much more durable than the original Jupiter 3 lens, which was made out of aluminium, so it will last for many, many years to come.
