Meyer Optik Görlitz Announces the Primoplan 58mm f/1.9 II Lens

Meyer Optik Görlitz has announced the 58mm f/1.9 II for nine different camera mounts and promises a lens that shares the characteristics of the original but manufactured with modern production processes and high-quality materials.

“With great pleasure we now present, after intensive and accurate work, the new Primoplan 58 II,” says Timo Heinze, Managing Director of OPC Optics. “About 85 years after the first Primoplan 58, we now offer a lens that has the characteristics and image-language of the historical original, while being manufactured using the most modern production processes and the best materials. Thus, photographers can get a perfect Primoplan 58 II with all the wonderful features that make and have made it so popular.”

Here is the list of all Meyer Optik Görlitz lenses released by now:

Following the very successful launch of the new Primoplan 75 II last quarter, the new Primoplan 58 II adds another legendary lens to Meyer Optik Görlitz’s current range. The Primoplan 58 II brings the popular features of Primoplan-photography to a more “normal” focal length, making it even more versatile than the 75mm version.

The new Primoplan 58 II offers, through the consistent orientation on the original from 1936, exactly the imaging characteristics that have always made it so desirable. With an even further improved optical design, the new Primoplan 58 II delivers the best possible contrast and high image sharpness. At the same time, many bokeh variations – from classic bubble bokeh to swirly bokeh, to very soft/creamy bokeh – can be created with the Primoplan 58 II. By combining the effects, versatile options are available. Also, the Primoplan 58 II delivers very good results, even in difficult lighting conditions, due to its speed of 1:1.9.

The design of the Primoplan 58 II follows the previous new editions from OPC Optics. So once again the lens received a stepless, damped, aperture & focus mechanism and can be used silently. As with all current Meyer-Optik lenses, the lens mechanics are produced by renowned German manufacturers in order to meet high-quality standards. In this way, an optimal interaction of the mechanical individual parts, a perfect feel, and the longevity of the lenses are guaranteed.

Here some sample pictures:

The company says the Trioplan 35 II will expand the portfolio of Meyer Optik Görlitz this year. In addition, new versions of the famous Biotars are currently being developed in various focal lengths. As well as versions of the existing lenses for the latest camera mounts (Canon R and Nikon Z). The exact dates of those releases are difficult to specify due to the current situation, but will definitely all be in the second half of this year.
