Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Primoplan 58mm f/1.9 II Lens for Sony E
Key Features
  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/1.9 to f/22
  • Central Dispersion & Converging Elements
  • Schott Glass, O'Hara Anti Reflex Coating
Based on a classic optical design from more than 80 years ago, the Primoplan 58mm f/1.9 II from Meyer-Optik Gorlitz is a unique slightly longer-than-normal-length prime lens for Sony E-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 14-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-element, four-group 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.

In the specs, it is put forth that the angle of view is 20 degrees. This should be about 40 degrees. Is there something wrong?
Asked by: Hugo
For a 58mm lens focused at infinity used on a full-frame 36x24mm sensor, the angle of view across the width of the sensor would be approximately 34.48°, while the angle of view across the height of the sensor would be approximately 23.38°, and the diagonal angle of view across the sensor would be approximately 40.91°.

The photo shows f16 and the text says f22 for max?? Which is it??
Asked by: Ernest
The minimum aperture is f/22, what you see in the photo is the depth of field scale, not the aperture ring. Basically it is not particularly necessary to show f/22 on the DOF scale.
