Bad Kreuznach – 30. November 2020 – with Primoplan 75 f1.9 II, a true legend returns to the portfolio of Meyer Optik Görlitz today. Following the successful releases of Trioplan 100 f2.8 II, Trioplan 50 f2.8 II and Lydith 30 f3.5 II, this new lens heralds the start of the Primoplan series.

“We are very pleased to be able to release an absolute smash hit with the Primoplan 75 f1.9 II despite the currently tense situation. Primoplan 75 has always been one of the most sought-after and at the same time rarest lenses from Meyer Optik Görlitz”, says Timo Heinze, Managing Director OPC Optics. “After it was discontinued in the middle/end of the 1950s, probably for political reasons and/or in favor of a market companion from Jena, Primoplan lenses that can be found today are traded at horrendous prices. With our new edition, we now offer the option to get a new, technically perfect, Primoplan 75 at a reasonable pricing.

The unique aspects in Primoplan photography
Primoplans from Meyer Optik Görlitz stand out for their versatile bokeh, sharpness and their speed. Particularly the smooth transitions from sharpness to fuzziness are outstanding. Since focused areas are very harmoniously set off from the out of focus areas, Primoplan photographs are given a plastic appearance and motifs appear slightly exposed. The creative options in image composition are endless. Thus, the famous soapbubble bokeh as well as a swirly bokeh can be created, depending on the shooting situation. The combination of both or also different sized bubbles in the foreground and background of the image, are only a few of the creative tools that are given to the photographer.

The Primoplan 75 f1.9 II is ideal for portrait photography, as its gentle yet fine resolution gives every portrait a unique charisma. Of course, the Primoplan 75 f1.9 II can also show off its strengths in other genres, e.g. nature photography, where it also produces stunning pictures. The focal length of 75 mm provides a natural angle of view and does not compress as much as longer focal lengths.

Highest mechanical quality and perfect haptics
The new Primoplan 75 f1.9 II, like the three previous new editions, offers uncompromising quality and mechanical perfection. The lenses are entirely made of metal and are individually assembled by hand, calibrated, and tested to ensure a perfect product.
