Meyer Optik Gorlitz has unveiled the full-frame Trioplan 50mm f2.8 II, a versatile lens with special “soap bubble” bokeh. The developer claims, the lens has been redesigned from the ground up: a new mechanical design based on the Trioplan 100mm f2.8 II now offers photographers excellent controllability with a 50mm focal length.
By optimizing the optical design, it can now focus on infinite sharpness even at f2.8, and thus nothing stands in the way of its versatility. Of course, Trioplan 50mm f2.8 II draws the famous soap bubble bokeh, and twelve aperture blades further help to produce smooth circular bokeh.
Trioplan 50mm is manufactured for the most common modern camera mounts Canon EF, Nikon F, Fuji X, Sony E, Pentax K, M42, Micro Four Thirds, Leica M, and Leica L. Additionally, the 50 mm 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.
