Many years after I discovered it exists I finally acquired a Domiron 2/50. Made in small numbers in 1960 and only in Exakta mount, apparently this is a little loved lens because all specimens I have seen over the years were barn or cellar finds heavily scarred by corrosion and fungus. This one is still in the mail but appears to be a nice specimen.

The Domiron has the reputation of being a wild one when it comes to bokeh and that is a plus in my book. Optically it has the same scheme as the later and faster Oreston 1.8/50, but I suspect this similarity is like a Domiplan 2.8/50 being similar to a Trioplan 2.9/50, both triplets, the Domiplan a bit faster but worlds apart in the bokeh department. Time will tell.

Great find Paul! Looking foward to the pictures!

I finally made some time to take the main Trioplan 1:4.5 f=7.8cm from it's original body.

Fortunately it wasn't too difficult, and it can even be re-mounted if required.

The lens has a thread at the back which fits convieniantly on a C-mount to M42 adapter. From there I could just build to the required length on the A7R2 with tubes and helicoids (could make it even work on my A99ii with A-mount as well).

And here a first quick shot with the main lens in the garden.

Seems an excellent (macro) lens Fred, well worth the effort. Good sharpness but still with a very nice smooth rendering. #3 and 4 are my favourites but the whole series is worthwhile.

These old Trioplans never stop to amaze me. Great sharpness and nice rendering. OK, not the bubbles we associate with Trioplans because of the later 50/2.9 and 100/2.8. #5 is quite a stunner Fred, but I agree with Pieter about the series.

Thanks Pieter and Paul
Fully agree with your statements about the lens. Tried to make it bubble, but that was pretty hard and did not give the real soap bells from the faster 50 and 100mm versions.

Very nice images, Fred. I'm not at all surprised at the sharpness of the Trioplan. All of mine are quite good performers. You have become quite a collector and adapter of lenses. I remember back when you started to dabble with these. Excellent work and obviously, great enthusiasm.
Regards,

Thanks Mike! Indeed I have a few now, but by far not as much as some other well known members

Echinacea

Camera Model: ILCE-7M3
Lens: Meyer-Optik Görlitz Primoplan 1:1.9/75 V (Exakta, 1955)
Aperture: f/1.9
Exposure Time: 0.002 sec (1/500)
ISO: 100

And if we may stray to another famous German lens manufacturer of the same era for comparative purposes:

Echinacea

Camera Model: ILCE-7M3
Lens: Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 1:1.5 f=7.5 cm T (M42, 1949)
Aperture: f/1.5
Exposure Time: 0.001 sec (1/1250)
ISO: 100

The Meyer produces more lines in the OOF areas, whereas the CZJ brings smoothness. I have not used the CZJ at f/2 for a closer comparison as the Primo is 'only f/1.9', because what is the point of stopping down a f/1.5 lens. But I'm very happy to own both of these legends.
