Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 50mm f/2.9 II Overview

Characterized by its distinct soap bubble bokeh, and reënvisioned with a close-focusing function, the Trioplan 50mm f/2.8 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 lens sees an improved optical design to achieve greater contrast and resolution, along with a redeveloped mechanical design with smoother operation and a more streamlined form factor.
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.
Manual focus design permits working with subjects as close as 15.75" away.
Twelve diaphragm blades help produce an artistic and distinctly circular bokeh quality.
Front 52mm filter thread is consistent throughout the Meyer-Optik Gorlitz version II lens series.

Waited awhile to get this lens but it was worth the wait. If you are buying this lens then you will already know it is not the sharpest lens wide open but that’s not what people are buying this lens for. With that being said, if you stop it down to f/4 it is tack sharp. So onto why people buy this lens, ofcourse it is for the soap bubble bokeh and unique rendering of the triplet design. The build quality is exceptional compared to Zeiss and Voigtlander lenses. Currently adapted to my Fuji XT-3 and loving the result, although I imagine the bokeh would be even better on a FF which I cannot wait to try out but you also utilize the best part of the lens when adapting to an APS-C camera. The image quality and especially the rendering that this lens gives is beyond what I’ve expected. If you want to get more creative or add a little flair to your photography, then definitely give this one a try. Will update with more thoughts once I find a suitable FF camera to test it out with.

Does this lens couple with the Leica M ...

Does this lens couple with the Leica M Rangefinder? I know that the 30mm does not. But this description is vague.
