Dr. Rudolph’s APO Plasmat Lens 105mm f2.7 Returns

Meyer Optik is launching another lens via kick starters the Plasmat Lens 105mm f2.7 that will be available for X-Mount and G-Mount. We previously mentioned this lens coming here.

When Dr. Paul Rudolph designed the Makroplasmat he was aiming at the highest or better to say perfect stage of chromatic correction. The result was a lens that is spherically corrected to the highest degree for the colors of the spectrum at various diaphragm stops. For the blue rays the diaphragm opening is slightly smaller than for the yellow rays. Paul Rudolph called the fact that he had spherically corrected the Makroplasmat equally well for all colors of the spectrum “Sphero-Achromatic”. By using the most modern glasses with tightest specifications we could improve this feature some more and the Makroplasmat lens is therefore designed to bring the three wavelengths (typically red, green, and blue) into focus in the same plane. The Makroplasmat is also corrected for spherical aberration at three wavelengths. The effect which is derived is a chiaroscuro (light and shade) of the Plasmat that shows an enhanced plasticity and a unique transmission of space formation with greatest pictorial atmosphere.

The lens will be available with mounts for 35 mm cameras (full format):

  • Canon EF
  • Nikon F
  • Sony E  FujiX
  • Leica M (rangefinder not supported/focusing via live view)

It will also be available for medium format with mounts for

  • Fuji G
  • Hasselblad X1D
