Meyer Optik Görlitz has just released Trioplan 35mm f/2.8 II. The new lens features a recognizable look and bokeh of other company’s lenses, and you can get one in pretty much any mount you want: 11 of them, to be exact.
With its 35mm focal length, the Meyer Optik Görlitz Trioplan 35mm f/2.8 II is aimed particularly at street and documentary photographers. However, this focal length can also work beautifully for landscapes, cityscapes, even portraits, so I’d say it’s a rather versatile lens. The maximum aperture is f/2.8 so it’s not super-fast, but it’s more than enough for achieving the beautiful background blur.
Speaking of background blur, this lens features a 12-blade aperture. It provides a recognizable “soap bubble” bokeh, and I personally love it. Here are the specs:
|Focal Length & Aperture:||35mm / f2.8 – f22|
|Angle of View:||63°|
|Minimum object distance:||0,2 m|
|Length (depends on mount):||52mm – 78mm|
|Weight:||270g – 300g|
|Housing:||Aluminum / black anodized|
|Leica-Rangefinder:||no (LiveView mandatory)|
The Meyer Optik Görlitz Trioplan 35mm f/2.8 II is available in 11 different mounts, and each is priced at $899. It’s worth noting that each version is available only as a “special order,” so you will wait 30 days before it gets delivered. Here are the options:
