Meyer Optik Görlitz Primoplan 58 f/1.9 II lens for Leica M and L-mounts announced

Today Meyer Optik Görlitz announced a new Primoplan 58 f/1.9 II lens for Leica M and L-mounts (not rangefinder coupled). Pre-orders are now open at B&H:

The initial Primoplan 58 f1.9 was developed by the brilliant Meyer-Optik designer Paul Schäfter 80 years ago. Its light intensity of 1:1.9, which was considered extremely high back then, made the Primoplan 58 f1.9 one of the most exciting lenses of its time. The Primoplan 58 f1.9 gained its legendary reputation among photographers around the world in no time at all.

Here is the list of all Meyer Optik Görlitz lenses (available at B&H) – the next lens to be announced will be the Trioplan 35:

Sample photos from the new Meyer Optik Görlitz Primoplan 58 f/1.9 II lens:

The lens has always been known for its extensive range of bokeh effects. With maximum aperture, the bokeh effect swirls and the lights flow into each other as if by magic. When stopped down, it is ‘creamy’ with slight detail in the blur. The smooth progression from focus to blur gives images a sense of depth. 14 aperture blades even blur the lights and depict them as almost circular.
