Hey all,

I just found this, didn't see it recently here, not sure if it's old hat, so if it is, I apologize.

Anyone who's into older vintage glass, will know the Trioplan name.

Apparently it's making a come back this summer and is supposedly already released last month in Germany & UK. Supposed to be released in multiple mount-types, including Canon. And they're apparently keeping the original design, so we can get that onion bokeh goodness.

Any sightings yet?

Very best,

Not seen anything about it, but then I don't really read the photographic press anymore. My first camera, which was handed down to me by my dad, was a mid 60's Praktica Nova B, with a 50mm f/2.8 Meyer lens. I think in those days the Prakticas came with the Meyer lenses as standard. Although typical eastern bloc communist fare, they were at least a step above the Russian kit of the day. I guess even under communism they kept a little bit of that German engineering quality.

this is very interesting!

i was considering buying one - one of these days
just for the fun of it.
i would love it - if it was the "same" but in a canon mount...

though I will hazard a guess that the older versions will be cheaper than the new ones....
depending on the delta - not sure how many people would jump on such a niche lens....
but i am interested in following it!!

thanks for the heads up!

Interesting. Curious about that double aperture ring thing. Sitting at € 700 and up they're not too expensive. Wonder how much the Trioplan will retail for.

If they can put it together to the same standard that Ivanichek has done with the 120mm Petzvar then it'll be a nice niche lens to have in the bag.

I've also seen people convert this lens to cameras that shoot 6x7.

Which is amazing since 6x7 is enormous compared yo 35mm.

I used an Exakta to EOS EF adaptor from Big_is. It is fine with the crop sensor cameras but it hits the mirror on my 5D. However it leaves only a narrow black band on the bottom of the picture.

sorry for reincarnating this one

but this lens was supposed to come out last year
even on their kickstarted page it noted that it finished the funding

B&H doesn't have it in their online catalog

anyone know anything?

It seems the international sales is starting slower. In Germany it is available in some shops:
https://www.fotokoch.d​e …OrY__j4_84CFeQy​0wodWcAKhQ (external link)

That company is much smaller than Canon and the other big players, smaller than small Leica too. So I suppose they take step by step much much slower than other photo companies we know.
On the other hand they want so show next new lenses tomorrow.

I will visit their booth on Photokina fair this month.

There is a company who do such conversions.
I took the easier way and build a simple mount for my Kiev 60 medium format camera on my Diaplan or Pentacon 100mm f/2.8 projection lens, which is a Trioplan 100 sister.

I love this lens!! It's soft wide open but it's very artsy. Here's an example of mine. I used an adapter that has the wrong exif in it. I wonder how much it is in USD. I was hoping my old copy would go up in value and be a collector's item. :(
