Meyer Optik Görlitz has officially announced its latest lens, the Trioplan 50mm f/2.8 II. This latest piece of glass from the manufacturer features the eye-catching effect of "soap bubble bokeh" and the iconic rotating background swirl that vintage lens enthusiasts love.

Featuring a new mechanical construction and a "significantly optimized" optical design, the Trioplan 50mm f/2.8 II lens is billed as being much sharper than its predecessor. As well as being sharper, this latest iteration of the Trioplan 50mm has received a slightly wider maximum aperture too – taking it from f/2.9 to f/2.8.
