Meyer-Optik Gorlitz 58mm f/1.9 Overview

  • 1Description

Based on a classic optical design from more than 80 years ago, the P58 58mm f/1.9 from Meyer-Optik Gorlitz is a unique slightly longer-than-normal-length prime lens for Leica L-mount cameras. Working in conjunction with the unique optical design is a bright f/1.9 maximum aperture, along with a manual focus design, that benefits the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques. The aperture setting, along with a 12-blade diaphragm, also greatly affects the quality of bokeh, with wide-open settings generating a distinct swirly bokeh quality, and stopped down settings producing a more detailed, yet smooth blur. In regard to the optical layout, a simple five elements, four groups construction is featured, along with the use of Schott glass to produce a high degree of clarity. An O'Hara Anti Reflex Coating is also applied to reduce surface reflections, minimize flare, and increase contrast. Additionally, the lens features an anodized aluminum housing that is durable, lightweight, and contributes to smooth, silent focusing performance.

Slightly longer-than-normal-length prime is designed for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used on APS-C-format models where it will provide an 87mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.9 maximum aperture allows for extensive control over depth of field, for working with selective focus techniques, and also benefits working in low-light conditions.
The optical design uses a five elements, four groups layout in which the central dispersion element is surrounded by two groups of converging elements, and the rear element has a biconvex converging design to produce notable smoothness and clarity.
Schott glass is used for high clarity and contrast, and each of the elements feature an O'Hara Anti Reflex Coating to suppress lens flare and ghosting for color neutrality.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 2' away.
Twelve diaphragm blades contribute to a smooth and distinct bokeh quality, which can be greatly adjusted by varying the aperture setting. When working at the maximum aperture, a unique swirly quality is present in out-of-focus elements, and when working with stopped down settings, a creamier bokeh quality is produced with greater detail in the blurred regions.
Anodized aluminum housing is both lightweight and durable, and also contributes to a smooth manual focusing action.
