Introducing the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System: One Story, Unlimited Endings


Life is unpredictable. With the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System, you’ll be ready for anything. Interchange the three front lenses to shoot exceptionally sharp images at a fixed focal length of 35mm, 50mm or 80mm; produce stunning sharpness with the iris diaphragm aperture mechanism; or use the six drop-in aperture plates to edge your frame in delicate bokeh at larger apertures. At every focal length, you can get near enough to take beautifully intimate shots and capture every last detail of your subject. Small and lightweight, this handcrafted Art Lens System has an optimal feature for any shooting situation and unlimited potential. We’re already looking at designing new front lenses with unique effects and focal lengths ranging from a ultra-wide-angle 15mm lens to a 400mm monocular. And if you back us on Kickstarter, you’ll be able to vote on which one we release first...

It’s been assembled by hand using the finest multi-coated glass, and crafted to ensure stunning sharpness and strong, saturated colors in every shooting situation. Available in Canon EF, Nikon F or Pentax K mount and compatible with many more cameras using adapters available from Lomography, it’s a complete yet compact kit for modern-day analogue and digital photographers and videographers.

    Didn't find in the add ons a special adapter from Nikon F to Leica M-mount (specified in the kickstarter adapter description) and if it's adaptable to m- mount is there a chance it's rangefinder coupled?

    Hi @vicuna! It's not rangefinder coupled, would a technical feat to do this for 3 interchangeable lenses on a fixed base. The adapter we are not stocking unfortunately but you will be able to mount it.

    @pan_dre thanks for the answer, I thought so as it would be difficult to have such lenses rangefinder coupled... but never mind, it will be great with
    my Nikon FE!! 😃

    Thank you @sirio174 @fragakis_p and @alienmeatsack !

    @pan_dre Why is this not on a T-mount with adapters for everything???? Why are the Lomography SLR lenses not all on T-mounts???? All of these things are manual and stop down, so this will work, and so cover every SLR in the world! Does look, maybe, over my budget.
