Primobolan 75 f1.9 II lens announced for sale.
“We are very pleased to be able to post an absolute success with the Primoplan 75 f1.9 II, despite the current tense situation. The Primoplan 75 has always been one of Meyer Optik Görlitz’s most sought after and at the same time rarest lenses, commented Timo Heinze, Managing Director of OPC Optics. “After being discontinued in the mid to late 1950s, probably for political reasons or in favor of a rival from Jena, the Primoplane available today is selling at horrendous prices. With our new version, we offer the opportunity to purchase the new, technically advanced Primoplan 75 at a real price. “
You can get an idea of the real price by taking advantage of the fact that pre-orders have already started on the B&H website. The lens costs $ 999. For this amount, the buyer is offered a lens with “universal bokeh, high aperture, and sharpness.” According to the manufacturer, the Primoplan 75 f1.9 II is especially suitable for portrait photography, but the lens can be used for other subjects. Its merits include “uncompromising quality and mechanical excellence.”
Main technical data of the Primoplan 75 f1.9 II lens:
- Focal length – 75 mm;
- Aperture – f / 1.9-f / 16;
