Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 50mm f/2.8 II Overview

By B&H Photo's

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 Sony E mirrorless 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.

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 is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, however can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 75mm equivalent focal length.
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 15.7" 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.
