Meyer Optik’s latest Kickstarter campaign brings back the “Wonder Bokeh” Primoplan 58 f1.9 Lens known for its ability to create different bokeh effects all with one lens. This lens gives photographers a tool which truly enables them to express themselves in different ways with this single lens.
They have the choice of creating a bokeh of melting, rotating bubbles, catching light reflections softly or to compose a creamy, dreamlike background. Furthermore, he can employ the unique, discrete swirl of the lens, thus dramatically enhancing a portrait or making use of the wonderful and smooth transitions from fuzziness to classical sharpness.
Built with an optical construction of five lens elements, Primoplan images became famous for their dreamlike diffluence of hazy bubbles in the bokeh, discreetly swirling around the center of the image. The moony bokeh and the soft haze in the background are characteristic. Yet, the object of interest is in astonishing sharpness and thus the viewer’s attention is focused to where the photographer wants it to be. The Primoplan 58/ f 1.9 is the lens that allows you to create images full of creativity without any post production.
The new Primoplan 58/ f 1.9 takes advantage of some of the components of the Trioplan 50. Therefore, we generate economies of scale and are able to make this fantastic offer available to you. The lens is also ultra compact and light weight. It weighs only about 225 g – it is the perfect match with your other lenses, especially your Trioplan lenses. The Primoplan is an enhancement of a Cooke triplet, in which a central dispersion lens is flanked by two groups of lenses, each acting as a converging lens. The rear group consists of a single biconvex converging lens, while the front group consists of three lenses. The field lens is slightly plano-convex, and is followed by another converging lens comprising two parts cemented together to form a slight meniscus (curve). This five-lens construction is renowned for its melting bubbles swirling in the background as well as its creamy and downright dreamy bokeh
