Meyer Optik Primoplan 75/f1.9 with Nikon D800E sample photos
→ The sample images from the prototype Primoplan 75/f1.9 lens (now on Kickstarter) were taken with a Nikon D800E by the German fashion photographer Benedikt Ernst. Some background on the Primoplan: Meyer Optik developed the Primoplan line of the lenses in the 1930s to be used with the Ihagee Exakta, the world’s first single-lens reflex camera. It stopped production in the 1950s as the East German government consolidated its camera and lens industry.

→ I didn’t know this accessory existed: the JMBS Jumbo MultiBigShoot Plus attaches a PC-E lens to a tripod and allows you to tilt and shift by moving the camera body.
