Coming soon: Omnar rangefinder lenses for Leica M-mount



Omnar is a new M-mount rangefinder lens manufacturer based on a collaboration between Skyllaney and 35mmc. Here are some details on their upcoming lenses:

  • The first lenses are going to be rehousings – they will be releasing these in batches, they will range from very characterful lenses to very well-regarded optics.
  • Omar plans to make also their own optics. They already have a formula for a brand new lens fully designed by them.
  • The lens housings are going to be made in the UK out of very high-quality materials – mostly brass.
  • Omnar is working on tolerances as fine as 5 microns to ensure absolute quality.
  • The new lenses will be hand-painted and will come in a variety of finishes.
  • The Omnar lenses are going to be hand-assembled in Scotland.
  • More information on the new lenses will be released in the summer, stay tuned.
