Meyer’s legendary portrait lens is back.

The Primoplan 75 f1.9 II is known for its fine progression from focus to blur, exceptional base sharpness and unique, dreamy, creamy bokeh, which lets the light magically flow together. The 75mm focal length creates a natural viewing angle and does not compress as much as longer focal lengths. Its 15 aperture blades enable the camera to create impressive blur patterns even when stopped down.


Living history

The historic Primoplan 75 f1.9 was developed by genius designer Paul Schäfter. Meyer-Optik applied to protect the design on 17/06/1936. The new version of the lens also come from Görlitz, with Meyer-Optik developing them with the support of engineer Dr. Wolf-Dieter Prenzel. He has redesigned the Primoplan 75 f1.9 II and carefully adapted it to the high standards of digital photography after an intensive development period, yet he nevertheless preserved its characteristics.


A constructive role in image composition

The Primoplan 75 f1.9 II is an enhancement of the Cooke triplet, in which a central dispersion lens is flanked by two groups of lenses, each acting as a converging lens. The rear group consists of a single biconvex converging lens. This exceptional design results in breathtaking images.

“I've worked with many lenses, but none of them perform as well as the Primoplan 75 f1.9 II. I see it as a paintbrush that I never want to let go of,” added internationally renowned fashion and portrait photographer Benedikt Ernst.
