Meyer-Optik-Gorlitz has launched a discounted pre-sale Kickstarter campaign for their new Somnium II 85mm f/1.5 FE Lens with the first deliveries planned for August 2018. Discounted pre-order pricing is available for $999 with free worldwide shipping. Highlights include:
Meyer-Optik Art Lens Configuration
Designed to guarantee an optimal balance between contrast & resolution with the goal to allow for a wide variety of artistic options. The lenses are optimized to maintain a relation between sharpness and characteristic bokeh which favors creativity over tech specs.
Meyer-Optik Clickless Aperture Mechanic
High quality adjustment rings run smoothly and noiseless and allow the finest variations in focusing. The new Somnium II is therefore ideal for videography. The completely enhanced mechanics and the improved focus ring are a pleasure to use .
