Are the beachhouses also from Katwijk?

Yes indeed, all images are from Katwijk

Excellent work from Katwijk Paul! Two lenses with their own character, but I like both. You've captured that monument really well.
PS: Katwijk is not that far for me. Whenever you would like some company on a photo trip, just let me know.

Meyer Görlitz Optimat 1:1.5 f=2cm, the fixed lens of the Siemens CII 16 mm film camera (1940). As the pre-1938 model of the camera had a Meyer Kino Plasmat I wondered what this Optimat would be. Some searching revealed that the Kino Plasmat is a symmetrical 4 group design with 6 elements (the front and rear element constructed from two cemented elements). Alas, the Optimat turns out to be a low cost version. Not a surprise as it was introduced in the market just before WWII. Four groups, four elements. Still it is a charming lens, but it lacks the resolution and swirly character of the Kino Plasmat.

Charming indeed Paul!
Just landed a new little Meyer project as well. I bought a Trioplan f=13cm (no f number) in a Siemens Dia Vorsatz, complete device, in original box.
I'll show some pictures later and still have to see how to mount it.
It's a tiny lens with a focussing mechanism in a tube.
We'll see what it brings, but it didn't cost the world

Fred: I'm very curious to see what you do with that one. I had never heard of the Dia Vorsatz.

Let me start with some pictures of the device and lens.
It could be mounted on a Siemens film projector to present your slides

Still have to figure out how to mount the lens on my camaera. Not sure if I will demolish the device and use the tube, or leave the Vorsatz in place, and only use the lens via a helicoid. The lens is easy to remove.

#1 Siemens Dia-Vorzatz


#2 Boxed


#3 Focusing handle



#4 Trioplan f=13cm



#5 Trioplan f=13cm, SN 820198


#6 That's al it is

I see, an attachment to the projector. Very interesting. It looks like it has a long register. A tad on the slow side too?

On second thought, maybe not too slow.

I have recently been having a love affair with a couple of character lenses and consequently, have neglected my Meyers. Last weekend I took the Diaplan 2.8/100 with me and made a point of using it. I was on the edge of the swamp, trying to get a dragonfly with good bubbles behind it when this fellow caught my eye. I found him to be much more cooperative and willing to take several poses.

A7 II and Diaplan 2.8/100.

It doesn't mention, but since it was used for slide projection, I guess it is not too slow.

Measure the diameter of the front and divide into 130mm. Should provide a rough estimate of max aperture.
