Meyer-Optik Trioplan adapted for digital

On Friday, I decided to take the Trioplan from an old Pentacon Pentona that I planned to bin and see if I could use it for digital.

Briefly, I fit it to an M-mount lens adapter and made a few modifications with a Dremel.

I was very happy with the results.

» Here is my writeup, a video and some sample photos.

Nice job! And, yes, that out-of-focus stuff is lovely on this lens.

Nice project. It is refreshing to find that digital cameras may have a purpose in life.

At the rate companies keep dropping film types, we may all have to resort to this sooner than later.

I have two Meyer-Optik lenses, a 100mm and a 250mm with Exakta mounts. I bought an adapter to fit them on a Canon EF mount. I haven't taken them out for any real shooting yet. But, just from my front door they do well.
