|A nice tele lens with original C-mount. Another reason why I like pre-war glass so much. I don't believe in the m4/3 format anymore so this lens is currently for sale on eBay and that will be my last steps in the micro mount lenses, but Meyer definitely made some good glass back then in the late 30's. It has a serial number near that of my 7,5cm 1:1.9 Primoplan and also the same external design.
Of course, the Trioplan is known for its funky bokeh and this one is no exception!
I had to remove the light baffle at the mount side, because the lens vignetted severely with it installed. Fortunately the baffle could easily be unscrewed without any damage to the lens whatsoever.
Some pictures needed a little help with contrast enhancements, but for instance my daughter's portrait was only converted from RAW, a little sharpened and saved to JPG without any contrast modification.
