Meyer-Optik Gorlitz introduced the Trioplan 100 mm f/2.8 II – a classic lens of the company’s family in a new, and revised version. It comes with an optimized mechanic, improved optical design and a newly developed lens coating provide “the best Trioplan images of all time.”
Trioplan 100 offers photographers the opportunity to rediscover the artistic essence of photography during the “point and shoot” photos on Instagram and battles with pixels from major companies, according to the manufacturer. The minimum distance to the object was reduced to 0.9 meters. The Trioplan 100mm f2.8 II offers balanced sharpness with the particularly attractive “soap bubble bokeh” achieved with f2.8 aperture.
Based on the classic Triplet design of 3 elements in 3 groups and a diaphragm consisting of 15 blades, the lens creates the famous bokeh and unique sharpness curve from the focused area to the background.
The optimized design now offers improved tactility, especially with regard to aperture settings, as well as even better contrast and sharpness characteristics. The company’s own glass lens manufacturing and the production of precision mechanical components through German partner companies ensure high quality. And silent focusing will be especially popular with videographers.
