Attention collectors!

I have decided to put my rare Meyer Gorlitz Primoplav Red V 58mm f/1.9 lens set up for sale in my online shop at if you’re interested in purchasing this famous and desirable “Bokeh King” lens.

The beauty of this lens is the desirable bokeh that it can deliver and yet stay sharp on the subject even wide open. Fotodiox makes adapters for the Exakta / Topcon mount to fit almost any popular modern DSLR or mirrorless digital camera.

I’ve included everything you see with this gorgeous lens. Only one previous owner and I purchased it from his estate as part of a large buy. AS always, thanks for stopping by and pop on over to my Etsy Shop at to see more and learn more about this historic lens. – Chris

Happy SUNday! – new and old

My new Canon EOS R mirrorless camera and my classic Canon EF 50mm f1.4 lens. By using Canon’s affordable EF-EOS R mount adapter I’m able to use all of my older (and newer) Canon EF mount lenses with no loss of quality or functions. I do have one of the new Canon RF lenses with another in the mail headed my way as I write this.

Old and new working together.

Notice how much more compact the new Canon RF 50mm f1.8 lens is (below) compared to the older Canon EF 50mm f1.4 lens pictured above with the EF to EOS R mount adapter. ATM Canon does not have an RF 50mm f1.4 lens available – only the RF 50mm f1.2L at nearly $2,300.

One of Canon’s newest RF lenses for the EOS R is the RF 50mm f1.8 STM lens. This lens lists at only $199 through Canon.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll have the big reveal by mid-week as to which new Canon RF lens will be in my mailbox. Have a great day! – Chris
