German lens maker Meyer-Optik Görlitz has released a new version of the Trioplan II 35/2.8 wide-angle lens for a range of camera mounts.
The new lens, based on a classic design from the 1950s, is being made available in the following lens mounts:
- Canon EF
- Canon RF
- Fujifilm X
- Leica L
- Leica M
- Nikon F
- Nikon Z
- Pentax K
- Sony E
The lens will be the first to be produced in the new Meyer-Optik Görlitz factory in Hamburg, which opened last year.
“Thanks to the special bubble bokeh, which is particularly painterly when stopped down further, the image results of the Trioplan 35 II are often almost indistinguishable from painted works of art,” Meyer-Optik Görlitz says in the lens’s listing on its website.
“The lens is made for travel, street or nature photography. In essence, it is completely different from other lenses that are only made for reproducing reality. It gives the pictures artistic charm, that certain something – just as it should be for a Trioplan.”
The lens has 12 aperture blades – helping create its characteristic “soap-bubble” bokeh – and a filter mount of 52mm. The lens only weighs between 270g and 300g, depending on which lens mount is chosen.
Meyer-Optik Görlitz said the lenses, which can be ordered directly from their site, take 30 days to produce. The price is €899 (£747/$1,000) including VAT.
