Meyer Primoplan 58mm f/1.9

The Primoplan is actually a modernized and coated version of the same named lens designed and introduced pre-war. None the less, this lens enjoy quite famed reputation as being eccentric in its optical design ( A radically modified triplet ) and its performance, being hailed as ” amazing ” at its time of introduction. All M42 Primoplan are manufactured in light alloy mount. most are in pre-set version but there do exist a very are and early variation with manual diaphram and much smaller filter mount ( probably 32mm ) . While it was never expenisve on the 2nd hand market, its now fairly scarce to be able to find a decent working sample as the manufactured quality and standrd of the lens are not exactly robust in the first place and the lens had a tendency to develop haze easily.
