    The Triple Play Bundle: Be One of the First to Try Our Next Lens

    What if you could be the first to try a new lens, a lens that has yet to be announced?

    Restoring the Trioplan lens line means that all good things come in threes. Our major 2017 lens announcement will be the third and final Trioplan in our line-up. By getting the Triple Play Bundle, you will not only get the f2.9/50 and its big brother the f2.8/100, but also a prototype of our new mystery lens.
    Be the first to get and try this special member of our Trioplan family. And become an official Meyer-Optik tester. That means you will be under NDA as you provide your feedback. Remember, your access to this lens is a secret!
    Your feedback will be incorporated into our development cycle and help shape the final specs of the Trioplan xxx. Later you receive a regular version for free in exchange if you want or you can decide to keep this version as a collector’s item.
