The new Biotar 75mm f/1.5 lens will be available for Leica M mount (with rangefinder coupling)





A few days ago I reported rumors about a new Biotar 75mm f/1.5 lens - I can now confirm that this lens will be released soon. The new lens will be available in Leica M mount and will have with rangefinder coupling. I will have more details next week, so stay tuned. Here is some additional information:

  • The Biotar name is registered by Globell - a subsidiary of net SE group, who is the company behind the Meyer-Optik Görlitz brand.
  • The new Biotar 75mm f/1.5 lens is created in collaboration between Meyer-Optik Görlitz and some other well-known names in the industry.
  • Production of the lens is not going to be done by Meyer-Optik Görlitz.
  • I was also told that an award-winning designer who used to work for Leica is on the Biotar team.

Here are a few pictures from old Biotar 75mm f/1.5 lenses:
