    @guanatos And I guess after that we'll have to wait for an even longer time for it to get here... Maybe pre-order or kickstarter I think. But I agree, definitely looking excited!!! :-)

    @sandravo let's wait and see but this 4th clue is pretty interesting!

    A bayonet mount 58/2 Helios tilt shift!

    Mirror-less?

    Nothing cheap for shure. :-(

    I guess it will be some sort of lens but at least this time it seems we could use it in analogue cameras as well. Not like the crappy movement they did with those lens for only digital cameras.

    @abced Maybe for Zenit 122k or for digital cameras... But I hope in a M42 mount!

    How about a tilt-shift Petzval on M42 mount???

    One thing that would be nice is an anamorphic lens like they use on movie cameras to shoot in cinemascope.

    I just hope it's going to be affordable.

    Or, looking at variety here, something on T-mount with adapters????

    i think a tilt shift adapter... for all sorts of lenses... what with the goat thing, and them being able to see the horizon whilst they eat grass and all that.... shifty tilty stuff

    I think its a wide angle lens like the limited edition MIR 1, which received a prestigious Grand-Prix Award during the Brussels World Fair in 1958

    The Zorki or FED?

    Ooob, interesting. Note how all of the cameras have no lens, trying to hide something perhaps?

    Hmmm, so it fits Leica M Mount, LTM and mirrorless...sounds cool. It's not a tilt shift lens because that would require an SLR setup, you couldn't use it on a rangefinder.

    allphotolenses.com/lenses/item/c_824.html Russar MR-2

    Yeah, I bet it's a MIR-1 37mm 2.8 lens, available in the following mounts: Screw, Leica M, Sony FE, Fuji XF, and Micro 4/3

    Russian FT-2 Panoramic camera?

    I got all excited when I saw the Bessa R and then the M6 and M9, I thought LTM/M Mount lens! I've been hoping they'd do their experimental lens kit for other mounts. 2 days until we know. And then poo poo the idea because whatever it is is too expensive and or has a loooong waiting time.

    Maybe im wrong, but all this cameras have something really special about their viewfinders or at least the introduced some alternate way to view, the same as the goat in the previous clue which has a wide angle of vision, and on the previous one certain astronomer observed the moon, etc.. That's my guess, a viewfinder that can do Lomographic magic!

    For me it's a recreation of a M39 mount ! Maybe a new type of lens based on FED rangefinder. Really love to see an all-in -one lens with a touret rangefinder

    I'm guessing our character might be Laika, the Russian space dog. 1958 was the year Sputnik 2 was last seen in orbit.

    I think it might just be a goat that is really into photography. And he can talk. And he is the new face of lomography.

  25. draekko74

    yup, something you can use with those cameras. A lens, or a mount, or both. And has to be panoramic, wide angle. And rectangular. And it will be called Goat-58.

  26. raylemon

    I am guessing maybe a rangefinder or something. Lomography already has point and shoots, slrs, tlrs but no new rangefinder design yet

    Just a mx capable wide angle lens for m43 I think

    shape-shifter!

    Hmmmmm so my guess is a lens adapter for the Petzval so you can use it on these cameras ...
