Bad Kreuznach – 12th March 2021 – Meyer Optik Görlitz is expanding its Primoplan portfolio with the Primoplan 58 f1.9 II. In addition to the very successful Primoplan 75 f1.9 II, the second lens in this series is now available in the usual Meyer Optik mount versions.
“With great pleasure we now present, after intensive and accurate work, the new Primoplan 58 II“, says Timo Heinze, Managing Director of OPC Optics. „About 85 years after the first Primoplan 58, we now offer a lens that has the characteristics and image-language of the historical original, while being manufactured using the most modern production processes and the best materials. Thus, photographers can get a perfect Primoplan 58 II with all the wonderful features that make and have made it so popular.”
Continuation of the Primoplan series
Following the very successful launch of the new Primoplan 75 II last quarter, the new Primoplan 58 II adds another legendary lens to Meyer Optik Görlitz’s current range. The Primoplan 58 II brings the popular features of Primoplan-photography to a more “normal” focal length, making it even more versatile than the 75mm version.
Primoplan imaging language paired with optimal performance
The new Primoplan 58 II offers, through the consistent orientation on the original from 1936, exactly the imaging characteristics that have always made it so desirable. With an even further improved optical design, the new Primoplan 58 II delivers the best possible contrast and high image sharpness. At the same time, many bokeh variations – from classic bubble bokeh, to swirly bokeh, to very soft / creamy bokeh – can be created with the Primoplan 58 II. By combining the effects, versatile options are available. Also, the Primoplan 58 II delivers very good results, even in difficult lighting conditions, due to its speed of 1:1.9.
Lens mechanics in established design style
The design of the Primoplan 58 II follows the previous new editions from OPC Optics. So once again the lens received a stepless, damped, aperture & focus mechanism and can be used silently. As with all current Meyer-Optik lenses, the lens mechanics are produced by renowned German manufacturers in order to meet the high quality standards. In this way, an optimal interaction of the mechanical individual parts, a perfect feel and the longevity of the lenses are guaranteed.
What are the next steps?
Trioplan 35 II will expand the portfolio of Meyer Optik Görlitz this year. In addition, new versions of the famous Biotars are currently being developed in various focal lengths. As well as versions of the existing lenses for the latest camera mounts (Canon R and Nikon Z). The exact dates of those releases are difficult to specify due to the current situation, but will definitely all be in the second half of this year.
