Today German lens manufacturer Meyer-Optik Görlitz announced a new Kickstarter campaign to fund a new and improved version of its Trioplan 50mm f/2.9 lens. Despite the campaign going for thirty-four more days the community has already pledged more than twice as much money Mayer-Optik was asking for.
If you’ve never heard of Meyer-Optik, it’s best known for its Trioplan series of lenses with the “soap bubble bokeh”. The 50mm f/2.9 will be available in almost all mounts, including micro 4/3, and it will cost $449. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative: the classic Trioplan 50mm f/2.9 is going for around $150 on eBay.
