Very few photography brands can sustain a legacy full of history. With the Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 II, Meyer Optik Görlitz has brought back a 100-year-old design with modern quality construction that renders a vintage unique style that endures artistic at this modern age.
Since coming under new ownership, Meyer Optik Görlitz has had something of a reform. The new owners, OPC Optics have also been taking ownership of the company’s historical mistakes, too. Promising new lenses with original designs, and not just rebranded copies of somebody else’s.
The first three of those lenses have now been announced. The Trioplan 100mm f/2.8 II, coming at the end of this month, with the Trioplan 50mm f/2.9 II and Lydith 30mm f/3.5 II coming in the following months.
Earlier this year, NetSE Group – the company behind Oprema Jena and Meyer Optik Göerlitz – filed for bankruptcy. The insolvency proceeding has now been opened, and all the lenses pre-financed by crowdfunding will not be delivered. In other words, if you have preorder any of these lenses on Kickstarter – it looks like you can kiss your money goodbye.
