Meyer Goerlitz Trioplan 360mm F3.5 !!
History: The Hugo Meyer Trioplan lens is legendary not only among large format photographers but also well known and respected on 35mm cameras. Its creamy 'bubble bokeh' can only be found in this lens design, and Trioplan lenses score high prizes among Leica and other analouge shooters. Another big advantage with the Trioplan is, that its really lightweight compared to similar lenses (Voigtländer Heliar of similar size weights 3 times that), thats usefull if your camera doesnt take heavy lenses or for field work.
The main difference here to a standard Trioplan is that this portrait version comes with a open aperture of F3.5 instead of F4.5. This gives the photographer even more room for low lights setup and and an even thinner DOF. You will hardly find a F3.5 Trioplan in this focal lenght anymore, since they were made only in very small numbers after the war.
The condition of the lens is really good. The black laquere shows only minimal wear here and there, but the most important thing: the glass is in a good condition, showing only the usuall cleaning marks which have no effect on the final image, otherwise its very clear without any haze or fungus. The aperture is complete and moves smoothly.
The lens comes with its original flange and even the original leather lenscap.
