New: Meyer Optik Görlitz Trioplan 50 f/2.8 II full-frame lens for Nikon F-mount


The new Meyer Optik Görlitz Trioplan 50 f/2.8 II full-frame lens for Nikon F-mount is now available for sale at B&H. This is an updated version of the previous model (additional information, including sample photos and the full press release, can be found here):

Characterized by its distinct soap bubble bokeh, and reënvisioned with a close-focusing function, the Trioplan 50mm f/2.8 II from Meyer-Optik Gorlitz is an update to a classic, vintage lens, and designed for Nikon F-mount cameras. Version II of this normal-length, manual-focus prime utilizes a revised triplet optical design to produce a distinguished image quality with strong colors and central sharpness, along with improved contrast and higher resolution rendering. Also, twelve aperture blades further help to produce smooth circular bokeh that is the lens’s calling card. Differing from the classic design of the century-old predecessor, this lens does feature modern coated Schott glass optics for notable contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, the lens also features a movable front element, independent of the focusing action, which increases the maximum magnification to 1:4 for working with nearby subjects as close as 9.8″ away.

  • Version II of this lens sees an improved optical design to achieve greater contrast and resolution, along with a redeveloped mechanical design with smoother operation and a more streamlined form factor.
  • Normal-length prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however is also compatible with DX models where it will provide an 75mm equivalent focal length.
  • Using a traditional triplet optical design, this three-element, three-group lens produces a uniquely classic image quality coupled with a distinct “soap bubble” bokeh quality.
  • Coated Schott glass is used for high clarity and contrast, as well as reduced lens flare and ghosting.
  • The front element of the lens can be moved independent of the focusing action in order to achieve a maximum 1:4 magnification ratio for photographing close-up subjects.
  • Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 9.8″ away.
  • Twelve diaphragm blades help produce an artistic and distinctly circular bokeh quality.Front 52mm filter thread is consistent throughout the Meyer-Optik Gorlitz version II lens series.
