The Primoplan 58mm F1.9 II lens is marketed by the manufacturer as a “reborn” version of the original lens, developed by Meyer-Optik designer Paul Schefter 80 years ago. Then this lens became popular due to the extremely high aperture for that time, as well as the ability to create a wide range of bokeh effects – from swirling to “creamy” with small details in a blur.

The manufacturer focuses on the quality of the optics assembly, high-quality color reproduction with high sharpness of the image, and, of course, on the possibility of creating an expressive bokeh effect (see examples of images on the Primoplan 58mm f / 1.9 II).

The cost of the Primoplan 58mm F1.9 II lens is $899 and it can be purchased via the website.

According to a number of sources, the next updated version of the legendary lens to be released by the Meyer Optik Görlitz brand will be the wide angle lens Trioplan 35mm II. The classic model of this lens was famous for the bokeh effect in the form of “soap bubbles”, but its optical scheme will be supplemented by the manufacturer.

In November 2020, the manufacturer Meyer Optik Görlitz also announced another portrait lens with manual focus settings – the Primoplan 75 F1.9 II. This model is also a remake of the historical lens created in the same year 1936. Then it became a feature of the beautiful transition from focus to blur and exceptional base sharpness with the ability to create dreamy “cream” bokeh.
