    Meyer Optik Görlitz Primoplan 75mm f/1.9 II Announcement

      News

    Meyer-Optik-Görlitz Primoplan 75mm f/1.9 II is an improved version of the lens from 2016, which is based on the construction developed in the 1930s. Meyer-Optik-Görlitz has announced that the lens will have the character of an original lens, but it will be adjusted to modern requirements.

    The optical system consists of 5 lenses made of the optical lenses Schott and OHARA, placed in 4 groups. The system enables focusing from the distance of 21.65’’ (55cm). This distance may be reduced to 9.84’’ (25cm) by mounting an additional lens to a filter thread.

    The lens is also equipped with a 14-blade aperture made of steel, which with the light of 1.9 is supposed to ensure unique background blur.

     

    Meyer-Optik-Görlitz Primoplan 75mm f/1.9 II, apart from the versions for Canon EF, Nikon F, Fujifilm X, Leica M and L, M42, MFT, Sony E and Pentax K, will be also offered for medium-format mirrorless systems: Hasselblada and Fujifilm.

    The lens will be (possibly) available in September 2018 and it will cost $2500. However, if we decide on the support of the producer in Indiegogo, we will be able to buy this lens for a very attractive price - $799. You can find the project’s website here.

      The presented Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH is the second in this century, and the fourth in general, construction which has appeared in the Noctilux series.

      A fixed lens, about which many portrait photographers have dreamed, is a fully manual lens, which is supposed to fully extend the new possibilities in this type of photography.
       

      1). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 with Leica M10
       
      The lens is supposed to ensure a significantly more shallow depth of field than Noktilux-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH, which is a remarkable achievement. Apart from that, we will get a minimum focus distance of 85cm.

      The lens is equipped with a 11-blade aperture, with the maximum nominal slot of f/1.25, which is going to provide a higher-than-average bokeh effect.
       

      2). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25
       
      The lens has the dimensions of 74x91mm and it weights 1055g so it’s not a compact one. Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 ASPH is going to be compatible with the M system, but thanks to a special adapter we will also be able to mount it to the Leica SL lens.
       

      3). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25 with Leica M10
       
      The optical system consists of 9 elements placed in 6 groups, and the whole construction is to be characterized by high resolution and proper correction of all optical defects, which is definitely going to be useful during the work with the lens and new future high-resolution cameras.
       

      4). Leica Noctilux-M 75mm f/1.25
       
      The price of the new lens is $12800 (unfortunately YES) and it is to appear on sale at the beginning of 2018.
