The Meyer Optik Görlitz Trioplan 50 f2.8 II marks the third new lens from Meyer Optik Görlitz since the brand has been restarted by OPC Optics.
OPC Optics, founded in 2016 and based in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, is a specialist for high-precision aspherical and spherical lenses, double-aspheres, achromats, and components and is a development partner and optics manufacturer for customers in the fields of photography, medical technology, automotive, laser technology, among others. Meyer Optik Görlitz has a long history as a German manufacturer of high-quality lenses. Founded in 1896, Meyer Optik Görlitz is existent for more than 120 years.
“With our Trioplan 100 II and our Lydith 30 II, we have already been able to successfully revive two absolute Meyer-Optik-classics despite the current difficult situation,” explains Timo Heinze, Managing Director of OPC Optics. “The customer feedback on these two lenses is very positive so far and we are very pleased to release the third lens, the Trioplan 50 f2.8 II, today”.
Like the two lenses already published (more info here and here), the optical design of the Trioplan 50 f2.8 II has been significantly optimized. The sharpness of the Trioplan 50 f2.8 II is considerably higher than that of its predecessor and at the same time, the speed has been slightly increased and adapted to the other focal lengths of the Trioplan series (from f2.9 to f2.8). The Trioplan 50 f2.8 II has also been given a completely new mechanism and convinces with optimal operability and best quality of workmanship.
The Trioplan 50 f2.8 II offers an extreme center sharpness as well as a beautiful bokeh. In the appropriate shooting situations the Trioplan 50 f2.8 II draws the famous bubble bokeh and at the same time a rotating background (swirl). Of course, depending on the situation, both effects also occur separately, and thus the Trioplan 50 f2.8 II offers many creative possibilities for your own image compositions.
Like all current Meyer Optik Görlitz lenses, the Trioplan 50 f2.8 II was also designed for the full format, but can of course also be used on APS-C cameras, and is manufactured for the most common mounts of modern cameras: Canon EF, Nikon F, Fuji X, Sony E, Pentax K, M42, Micro-Four-Thirds, Leica M and Leica L.
Next on the lens lineup two further and very popular Meyer-Optik-classics, the Primoplan 75 f1.9 II and the Primoplan 58 f1.9 II, which are almost ready and will be released shortly.
