I've admired the the Meyer Optik Görlitz Trioplan 100 F2.8 original for years 
and the newly manufactured version has better haptics and a bit more contrast 
and excellent coatings.  The classic versions for the 50's used to be a hundred 
bucks or so but now are a bit crazy in price.  There is something about using a 
true classic vintage lens, however.  The new ones are about 1000 bucks and a 
bit of a stretch for a specialty lens.  Trioplan 100 f2.8 II | Meyer Optik

Now there is a quick cheap knock-off.  I wish the build quality were a bit 
better and at least some effective coatings to reduce flare but at least it is 
an option. It is a cooke triplet after all and not that difficult to make. 
Curiously the unique bokeh was considered a defect back in the day.  


What say thou? 

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble, Mike
