Went on a little road trip to Wales today to have a look at some super rare vintage lenses that I found on Facebook Marketplace. You might call me crazy for going on a 4 hour round trip to buy some boring dusty lenses but it was all worth it in the end! A very friendly retired farmer had a vintage Exakta VX1000 for sale with 4 lenses, one of which I was looking for, the Meyer Optik Trioplan 100mm f2.8. I only found out about this lens yesterday after coming across a post on Facebook about photographers who adapt old glass to modern cameras. This particular lens (first manufactured in 1916) has a remarkable 'Bokeh' effect that resembles bubbles. Bokeh is a Japanese term that means 'blur quality', these are the beautiful circles that appear when light is out of focus. The company who manufactures this lens has resumed the production after a crowd-funding campaign raised a massive amount of money due to the high demand. Looking forward to experiment more soon with both photo and video using these vintage lenses.
Camera: Sony A6500
