There is an other new & ongoing Kickstarter project for a Petzval lens,
also suitable for medium format.

It's for a F3.8 120mm Petzval lens for medium format cameras with a
Pentacon Six and Hasselblad compatible mount. With an adapter also usable
on 135 format cameras.
It looks even more interesting to me than the Lomo lens, since it is also
usable for medium format cameras. It's not mimicking an old brass lens, but
(to me) this design looks even better for this type of cameras than the
Lomo lens.
What do you think?

It's suitable for:

Pentacon Six mount cameras, like:
 - Kiev 88
 - Praktisix
 - Pentacon Six
 - Exacta 66
 - Kiev 60 ( or 6C)
 - Kiev 88 CM (not older Kiev 88 for its older screw mount??)

 Hasselblad mount for:
 - 2000 series cameras
 - 200 series cameras
 - NOT: 500 series (due to missing shutter in body and lens??)

 Also, different types of adapters are available from different
manufacturers. They allow the use of P6 lenses on Mamiya 645, Pentax 645
and Contax 645 medium format cameras, Canon EF, Canon FD,Nikon F, Minolta
AF, Minolta MD, Contax/Yashica, Pentax K, M42, and Leica R 35 mm cameras,
as well as Lumix and Olympus micro 4/3 (m4/3), 4/3 system.
