Characterized by its distinct soap bubble bokeh, and reënvisioned with a close-focusing function, the Trioplan 50mm f/2.9 from Meyer-Optik Gorlitz is an update to a classic, vintage lens, and designed for Leica M-mount rangefinder cameras. This normal-length, manual focus prime utilizes a traditional triplet optical design to produce a distinguished image quality with strong colors and high central sharpness, and twelve aperture blades further help to produce smooth circular bokeh that is the lens's calling card. Differing from the classic design of the century-old predecessor, this lens does feature modern coated Schott glass optics for high contrast and color neutrality. Additionally, the 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.

Normal-length prime designed for full-frame and 35mm Leica M-mount rangefinder cameras.
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.
The front element of the lens can be moved independent of the focusing action in order to achieve a maximum 1:4 magnification ratio for photographing close-up subjects.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 9.8" away.
Twelve diaphragm blades help produce an artistic and distinctly circular bokeh quality.
