Following on from the Lydith 30mm F3.5 II and Trioplan 100mm F2.8 II lenses, OPC Optics, which now owns the Meyer Optik Görlitz brand, has released this year’s third updated Trioplan 50mm F2.8 II full frame lens.
It is said to be not just an improved version of the original product, but “a completely new lens designed from scratch”. At the same time, it retains the classic optical circuitry that provides a characteristic blur outside the sharpness zone. The lens has a slightly larger maximum aperture of f/2.8 compared to f/2.9 of its predecessor. The minimum focusing distance is 40 cm. Filters with a diameter of 52 mm can be mounted on the lens that is manually focused.
The Trioplan 50mm F2.8 lens is available with Canon EF, Nikon F, Fujifilm X, Sony E, Pentax K, M42, Micro Four Thirds, Leica M and Leica L mounts for approximately €876.
According to OPC Optics, two more models of the classic lineup will be released soon: Primoplan 75mm F1.9 II and Primoplan 58mm F1.9.
