I also like the boulevard shots here Fred, less "cold" then the B&W versions. Some work better in B&W (#8) while some others here really need the colour, like #1
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Or post them in the sample thread

Nice work with the Oreston Fred. On the whole I prefer the bw versions. I'm glad you are a bench lover too.

Let me introduce another little Trioplan:

47 Meyer Trioplan F = 2,5cm 1:3.5 on NEX-5


photo made with: a7rii + Meyer Helioplan 40/4.5 (1954; M42)

The Trioplan 25/3.5 was used on the subminiature Minifex, a camera made in the 1930s by Fotofex Kameras in Berlin. The camera took 36 13x18mm photos on special 16mm film. Surprisingly, the lens has no problem with the APS-C sensor.

For more information see here
and here

Here's a selfie:

48 Meyer Trioplan F = 2,5cm 1:3.5 on NEX-6


more to come!

Congratulations Leo. Looks very promising. I know there are little Trioplans to be had. I have been looking at a Bolta Photavit with Meyer Gorlitz Trioplan 2.9/42 mm for day 42 but too rich for me.

Thanks Paul. It's a nice lens, quite rare; everything working as it should, including the front cell focusing.
The only challenge is to get it very near to the sensor. In the subminiature Minifex it must have been quite close to the film. ATM I have it teflontape fitted in a C-mount > M42 adapter and a slim M42 > E-mount adapter. But that's too thick.

That Trioplan 42 isn't cheap, no; but can be had for some 100.

Thanks Leo. Yeah, these benches are nice indeed as subject for us. Only people who think these benches are there to sit on can be annoying sometimes

100 sounds much better than I could find...

Lens for the Samsung, the mini-3oplan?

Beware Paul, Leo also mentioned early in this thread that a good Primoplan can be found for $200. I haven't found them yet for those prices
Might be his way to drag us into GAS that goes with the Meyer virus.

$147 for mine. Highest price I've ever paid for a lens.

Recently? That would be a no-brainer for me if I found one for that money. Even copies with fungus go for double prices on ebay

I fear that the fancy prices of the reincarnated Meyers cause price increase in the vintage ones...
