I bought a set of Lomo lenses on Ebay. There are a few legitimate sellers of Lomo lenses and Konvas cameras from Russia and The Ukraine. Just make sure to check their feedback.

http://www.commiecam.com/ is a good resource site for Konvas cameras and Lomo lenses

And what do you think so far about thoses lens (Lomo)... does it make sens to use them with Dof Adapter or the resolution is too outdated and any Nikon would have a better sharpening and more contrast ?

Anyone ever tried Canon k35 cine lens with a DOF adapter ?

thanks

I have found them to be very good. I just have a homemade adapter but it has worked well for me and the lenses tend to go for very reasonable prices
