What am I?
クイズ!これは何でしょうか?コメントで答えをやってめて下さい

I don't normally have two of my What am I? quizzes ongoing at the same time, but even though I've not yet been able to write up the article that answers the previous A Dark, Striated “What am I?” Quiz, I wanted to offer this one. I just really love the colors and unearthly mood.

What are the things above?

(As always, I'll keep submitted answers private until I post the answer in a day or two.)

Bristles on a toothbrush? Your earlier puzzle has me beaten, though something about it looks familiar…

I am sure the world, as well as me, is awaiting your verdict on the Venus lens, quality and usability… and of course a comparison with the Voigtlaender.
