Meyer-Optik-Görlitz launches Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 II lens. Version II of this manual-focus telephoto prime utilizes a revised triplet optical design to produce a distinguished image quality with strong colors and central sharpness, along with improved contrast and higher resolution rendering.
The optimized mechanics, the improved optical design and a newly designed lens coating enable the best Trioplan pictures of all times. In addition, the minimum object distance has been reduced to 0.9m. The Trioplan 100, worldwide known for its distinctive soapbubble bokeh, offers photographers the opportunity to rediscover the artistic soul of photography in times of point-and-shoot, instagram snapshots and pixel battles from major manufacturers. With our Trioplan 100 f2.8 II you create unique images and stand out from the crowd.
The new Meyer Optik Görlitz Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 II lens is available from various retailers for Sony E, Canon EF, Nikon F, Pentax K, Fujifilm X, Micro Four Thirds, Leica L, M42, and Leica M mounts with a price tag of $999.
- Version II of this lens sees an improved optical design to achieve greater contrast and resolution, along with a redeveloped mechanical design with smoother operation and a more streamlined form factor.
- Short-telephoto prime is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount cameras and provides a 150mm equivalent focal length.
- Using a traditional triplet optical design, this three-element, three-group lens produces a uniquely classic image quality coupled with a distinct “soap bubble” bokeh quality.
- Coated Schott glass is used for high clarity and contrast, as well as reduced lens flare and ghosting.
- Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 3.3′ away.
- Fifteen diaphragm blades help produce an artistic and distinctly circular bokeh quality.
- Front 52mm filter thread is consistent throughout the Meyer-Optik Gorlitz version II lens series.
Especially in portrait and nature photography the Trioplan 100 f2.8 II, designed for the full format, finds many followers. The particularly sharp-edged soap bubble bokeh is created most strongly in situations with open aperture (f2.8) and back light. But even apart from that, this lens draws picturesque gradients in the background and lends your photographs that certain something. Furthermore, it is suitable like no other lens for the use of an extension ring. Due to the shorter minimum object distance, the soap bubbles in the background increase many times over and you achieve an extremely high and fine resolution in the close-up range.
The new Meyer Optik Görlitz lenses are already available for preorder for different DSLR and mirrorless mounts.
