Meyer-Optik Görlitz Trioplan 100mm f/2.8

This was a must-have vintage lens for me in 2016. I found this ugly specimen with almost mint optics that I paid too much for. I’m not sure why, but the mystical soap-bubble bokeh had me enthralled. I had to have it. It is definitely a specialty-use lens, but that’s OK. I bring it out for Xmas and other occasions when I need that magical bokeh to frame my portraits. It is pretty soft wide-open, but you don’t want to shoot this lens any other way. It has a vintage glow, but images can be cleaned up nicely in post. Despite its flaws, it’s a keeper. I suggest using it on full-frame cameras as the extra length of a crop sensor really extenuates its flaws.
