Back in February I reported that the Russian camera and lens manufacturer Zenit is coming back to life. The Russian photographer Denis Gavrilov posted some more information on the upcoming KMZ/Zenit lenses on his website and more specifically in this article (English translation):

Zenitar 85mm f:1.2 lens

→ Zenitar 85mm f/1.2 for 24x36 SLR cameras, planned for 2016 or 2017 (Zenitar-N means the lens has a Nikon mount)

Zenitar 50mm f:1.2 lens

→ Zenitar 50mm f/1.2 for 24x36 SLR cameras, scheduled for 2016, which would replace the current one, which is limited to APS-C cameras

Zenitar 50mm f:0.95

→ Zenitar 50mm f/0.95 for 24x36 mirrorless cameras (only E-mount for the time being but other mounts could be introduced a later).

→ Lomography-Zenit New LZK 1948+ 5cm f/2 L39/M (a modernised Jupiter-8)
→ Lomography-Zenit New Jupiter 9+ 85mm f/2 L39/M (those two following the New Russar+ 20mm f/5.6 and New Jupiter 3+ 50mm f/1.5)
→ Belairgon 90mm f/8 and 114mm f/8 for medium format cameras.
