I found this lens on ebay and was wondering what a fair price would be for the lens?

I do not have a single piece of Meyer in my collection so I thought I might give one a try. Smile

Ten bucks max. It's not the lens that will warm you to Meyer Confused

I agree 100% with Graham - not the most endearing of Meyer lenses.

As a recent convert to Meyer lenses, and having acquired purely by chance the Trioplan 2.8/100 for shag-all (Irish speak for very little Wink), I think you'd be better off looking at the Oreston 1.8/50 instead.

Whilst it's still not necessarily an earth-shattering lens, it's streets ahead of the Domiplan, and is proof that you can get a fast-ish 50mm lens for not a lot of moolah (I sold my duplicate recently for €35.00), and have a lot of fun with it.

I have a Domiplan and it's easily my worst lens. Think I paid like 2 USD for it, but I never use it.
I would recommend the Meyer Orestor 2.8/135. It has a fantastic out of focus rendition. Very good for portraits.

If you need impressive Meyer lens try to get Zebra 135mm pre-set Pentacon.

Orestor/Pentacon 100mm 2.8 is a nice Meyer lens too.
The Domiplan doesn't even have a A/M switch. Triplet that has to be stopped down seriously.

Thanks for all the input. I guess i wont be bidding on this lens after all. Shocked

It's listed at 35.00 USD starting bid. I'll give it a pass and look up a few that have been suggested.

Thanks. Very Happy

Well, I just added a Super-Takumar 55 1.8 to my collection for that price.

So if this Meyer is junk, then yes that starting bid of 35.00 is OUTRAGEOUS!

Sounds like my Chinon 50 1.9 is a much better lens than this Meyer. These can be had for 20.00.

Tough times my friend. I want the best I can get for my money.

They can be had for $20 with a camera thrown in as well. I scored mine with a Praktica TL and a Tokina 28/2.8 with a bent front rim for that price in Aussie dollars.

Can't compare Domiplan with the Chinon. Chinons are really good lenses.

This sounds like it's a true statement. I collect Chinon, so Im very familiar with the glass.

I never used the Meyer, so I can only go by hear-say. I think the 35.oo USD starting bid was much too high considering the feedback I received about this lens.

Want my domiplan? It's yours for the price of shipping. I'm in CT. It is in great condition. I was planning on using it as a 100mm with a teleconverter (I had read simple lens designs, which obviously this is, with a simple teleconverter can offer fairly good results) but now that I have a dedicated 100mm I probably will not get around to it. I modified it using the cue-tip shaft procedure to make it a fully manual lens. It would be easy to rectify if you want the auto pin back in place.

I wouldn't form any opinions about meyer on it, but if you REALLY want to give it a try, its all yours!
