By the late-1950s, the Zeiss Planar had begun to establish itself as the standard bearer for 50mm lenses, and many camera makers would soon follow suit, using the design as the basis for their own 50mm lenses.

However, not everyone jumped on board, and you can count Meyer-Optik Goerlitz as among them.

With Meyer-Optik becoming a player again in photography, it’s a good time to revisit its top lens for 35mm SLRs – the f/1.9 58mm Primoplan.

Meyer-Optik Goerlitz is at it again.

With 50mm and 100mm Trioplans making their way into the hands of buyers, the revived company is now turning its attention to bringing back another of its classic lenses: the Primoplan.

And like the Trioplan, Meyer-Optik is turning to a Kickstarter campaign to secure funding and gauge interest in the lens.
