The Primoplan 58 II f1.9 was developed by Meyer Optik Görlitz’s brilliant designer Paul Schäfter 80 years ago.

Its light intensity of 1:1.9 which was considered extremely high back then, made the Primoplan 58 one of the most exciting lenses of its time.

The Primoplan 58 gained its legendary reputation among photographers around the world in no time at all.
