Characterized by its distinct soap bubble bokeh, and reënvisioned with a close-focusing function, the Trioplan 50mm f/2.9 II from Meyer-Optik Gorlitz is an update to a classic, vintage lens, and designed for Leica M-mount rangefinder cameras. Version II of this normal-length, manual-focus 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. Also, 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 notable contrast and color neutrality when working in strong lighting conditions. 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.
