More than just a pretty bubble...

Thank you, Fred and Snegren. I have so many since I use the lens frequently. Realy, a very special lens.

I have discovered (and joined) a facebook page for Meyer. It might be considered a master album for the various Meyer lenses, old and new.

Ah, Paul, you have one too. Very nice. It is a wonderful lens. I have noticed the Meyer facebook page to have what seems a large percentage of the postings to be from Primoplan. Now if only I can find a 75mm.

You can get the new one but it is ugly and expensive. An old one is more expensive, the last one I saw was 3k USD.

I misspoke. I meant to say find an affordable one. I have no interest in the new series of lenses. While I'm sure that they try very hard to replicate the lenses, I do prefer originality. I also wonder about the longevity prospects of the new Meyer company. Their lenses are expensive and now are replicating the Lydith - a lens easily acquired for small money. And if they make it different, then it isn't a Lydith. I do like the old Lydith for what it is.

There are many more Meyer lenses to post about. The Oreston is a wonderful lens that is plentiful and still cheap. I would consider it a poor man's Primoplan.

Yes, the Oreston is a marvel and underappreciated price wise (fortunately). It doesn't have the polished aluminium or chrome over brass look though, although I think my Zebra version looks rather smart. It is optically very close to the Domiron 50/2 but that one is extremely rare and expensive.

I've seen the Domiron come up once at my favorite shopping site but at the time, I didn't know what it was, so I ignored it.

I should have mentioned the build of the Oreston (not to be confused with Orestor). It has a funky stop down button of sorts that often misfunctions along with the aperture. I have disabled the auto function, so mine now operates like other manual lenses. That style body construction is poor and it extends to the auto version of the 2.8/100 Orestor and the Pentacons that followed. The preset version of Orestor is a much better construction, although the two versions are equal optically.

Perhaps some samples of Oreston?
