Meyer Primoplan 1.9/58 V #1194547, I found my copy sharper wide open then Biotar 2/58 @2.0
@1.9

The Primoplan has become my favourite of the really old (pre 1970, older than me Wink) 50mm lenses.

Nice rendition and color on pic 1, seems a cool lens but a bit expensive.
nowadays Very Happy

Very nice shots, I think Primoplans are perfect example of the fact, that sharpness isn't everything. Primoplan lenses have strong character, unique bokeh, which can't be crated by any double-gauss lens and nice colors.

Thank all for such nice opinions. This is preset model, glossy polished aluminum body, lens is in 9.5/10 condition. Very shallow DOF wide open. This is an example that sometimes less known lens, underrated on the market would be a very nice item.

I have recently seen a photo taken with this lens and I am absolutely in love with its rendering of the OOF areas. All other photos taken with this lens which I found, including the ones here, I have liked too.
Thank you for the posts in this thread everyone . I now begin my quest for a reasonably priced one.

The price is a problem - it is relatively high for another ~50mm lens.
I search since months, but found not a cheap enough. But ok, its price probably reflects its good quality - as shown here with the images!
