It appears that of the 10 lenses, 6 are veeery wide angle 8/16 hologon which go for around $2,400 each. However, they are so wide that on digital sensors, they cause problems with streaking across a great part of the sensor, since the registration distance is so close. And there is really no fix. Great film lenses - in this case not so good on digital sensors.
