Meyer Optik Görlitz has released the Trioplan 50mm F2.8 II, its third lens of the year, following the Lydith 30mm F3.5 II and Trioplan 100mm F2.8 II. Like both of the previous lenses, the 50mm F2.8 II isn’t just an incremental update—it’s entirely new, designed from the ground up.
The lens has a slightly faster maximum aperture of F2.8 compared to its predecessor, which maxed out at F2.9. The lens also features the signature ‘soap bubble bokeh,’ has a 52mm front filter thread and a minimum focusing distance of 40cm (15.75”).
Below are a number of sample photos captured with the Trioplan 50mm F2.8 II, provided by Meyer Optik Görlitz:
The Trioplan 50mm F2.8 II is available in the following mounts: Canon EF, Nikon F, Fuji X, Sony E, Pentax K, M42, Micro Four Thirds, Leica M and Leica L. It’s currently available to purchase on the Meyer Optik Görlitz website for €876.34 (approximately $1,020), not including shipping.
OPC Optics, the new owners of the Meyer Optik Görlitz brand, says it has two more classic lens designs on the horizon: a Primoplan 75mm F1.9 II and a Primoplan 58mm F1.9. OPC Optics says the lenses are nearing completion and ‘will be released shortly.’
