    Not sure if I want this or not tbh. F10 and lack of flash ability makes it really restrictive. i know there'll probably be more mini lens only kits in the future, but I don't really fancy having a range of individual 50mm lenses with different fixed apertures.

    I haven't seen any info on the lens mount either? Is it a custom mount or m42, k, md etc?

    A hot shoe would have been an awesome addition. Hopefully Lomo makes up for that oversight with more lenses for this baby.

    Seriously I can't stop thinking about it. A lightweight 120 SLR would be a miracle... Konstruktor 120...
