TTArtisan released a Trioplan replica today:



Compared to the used original lenses and those vastly overpriced remakes from Meyer Optik themselves this is very affordable at $155.
Like the original it comes in M42 so can be adapted to a plethora of camera systems, apparently it even works on GFX.



We received an early review copy prior release and my new colleague Martin (who also owns some of the original Meyer lenses) was the right guy to review it:

Review at phillipreeve.net

Bubbles are definitely there:







Now personally I am not a fan of this bokeh type, but that being said this lens showcases
what a lens made of 3 simple elements should cost and it was never more obvious
what a rip-off the Kickstarter remakes north of one grand actually were.

Not quite, it will be available to buy at 6:00 pm UTC/GMT+8:00 (that is 12:00 noon in Germany) in their official TTArtisan shop.

No idea why they scheduled release and shop release 6 hours apart.
Seriously no idea...

Now they should remake the Kilfitt Makro Kilar 90mm 2.8, double bubble!

Got it through the affiliate link - discount code TTA gets another $5 off!

And the value (118) is nicely below the 135 VAT/customs value threshold for UK imports (while it's still there...).

Thanks Bastian and Martin!

Well, I bought new Trioplan Mk2 100/2.8 in FE mount for 1000 Euro 2 years ago.Too bad TT Artisan had not released this lens earlier.

I hope that they release something like 50/2.8 and 35/2.8 cheap Trioplan copies too.

Makes me want to finally get an M42 or FD film body! I was looking at the Trioplan a couple months ago but couldn't justify it with how rarely I would use it in reality. This is about right for me.

I have the original Trioplan lens that I bought from Ukraine some time ago. I'm curious about how this new TTA version compares to it. Is it basically an exact optical design copy?

The lens is now also available in native M-mount with rangefinder coupling.
Review from the first post has been updated with that information as well.

Nice! Are you going to test that one? My concern w TTA is often you need to correct the focus calibration. Once you get to a tele focal length, that becomes more delicate.

Just bought one.. $210 for this? Seriously? In M mount that I can also use on my Z?

I was humming and hawing over the LLL 50 SP but never pulled the trigger as I have lots of 50s, including vintage ones and I couldn't see it doing anything different or useful for me apart from having one. But this Trioplan replika does bring something different to the table.

Very unlikely. I don't think I could reveal anything useful that Martin didn't already do in the review.
And I don't really trust the rangefinder with a 100mm lens.

Bastian,
The LLL 1.4x viewfinder (with diopter) is of great help!

I've done fine using a 90mm with the RF, I'll see how this goes. I'll first try it on my 10r so as to not waste film, if it is good w the RF then I'll know I can use it on my film Ms.

I had a Leica Elmarit 135mm 2.8 lens w the goggles. And that was hopeless trying to get in focus pics. I sold that lens very soon after I bought it.

I've been using original new Meyer Optik Gorlitz Trioplan 100/2.8 MK2 for 2,5 years now.What I expect from TTArtisan is introducing cheaper copies of both 50/2.8 and 35/2.8 triplets,preferably with Sony FE mounts.

I ordered on to use on my Zf. Sort of the "anti-Plena".
