If you want us to send an Meyer-Optik adapter with the lens (49$/49€), please let our sales team know, when they get in touch to ask you for your preferred mount and color for your order.
  • Lens configuration: The lens is classic inside out, so it doesn't feature Macro elements like the standard version but focuses to infinity at f2.9 and its minimum focussing distance is 0,6 m.

Built with an optical construction of three lenses, Trioplan images are famous for their soap bubble bokeh, sharp subjects, and extraordinary resolution. Our new Trioplan classic brings back this unmatched legend's most versatile focal length (the f2.9/50) and its artistic charm & bokeh.

The Trioplan was one of the first popular lens designs to allow a relatively high optical correction, an extraordinarily sharp center and a high maximum aperture. The Trioplan demonstrates its famous soap bubble bokeh when used wide open, especially when exposed to backlight or when capturing background reflections. Our Trioplan 50 classic is based on the original construction plans and design.

 scenes from our production
  • Meyer-Optik Art Lens & Bokeh Style
    At Meyer-Optik a lens is not only a piece of mechanical and optical construction but it is our goal to obtain a fine balance of sharpness, contrast and the unmet Meyer-Optik bokeh characteristics. Therefore we go a long ways in trial sessions and work closely with our reference photographers and get them in touch with our lens designers to to guarantee the optimal balance between all these aspects so that that what you will hold in your hands is a masterpiece and one of its kind. Creating the best lenses means that we want to hit just that sweet spot where the relation between sharpness and characteristic bokeh is at its best and allows you to favor creativity over tech specs.

    Our high quality adjustment rings run smoothly and noiseless and allow the finest variations in focusing. The new Trioplan 50 Classic  is therefore ideal for videography. The completely enhanced mechanics and the improved focus ring are a pleasure to use .
