All Mayer lenses have good cost & performance !? Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestegon 29mm F2.8 in Ogikubo

Digital Camera

The Orestegon 29mm is one of the less informative lenses in Meyer-optik, which has no other prominent lens other than Trioplan.
However, all of the Meyer lenses I’ve tried so far are reasonably priced and look good. How about Orestegon?

M42 Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestegon 29mm F2.8

Meyer-Optik Görlitz was quite interested in the fact that the 50mm Oreston was cheap and looked pretty good.
As a business, it seems that it ended in failure in the rough waves after the war, but I think that most of the remaining lenses are sharp lenses with good quality.

Meyer seems to have the impression that the focus is sweet to camera enthusiasts when the film was in full bloom, but the Oreston 100mm, Trioplan 50mm, and Oreston 50mm that I have tried so far are all easy to grasp and relatively sharp. I feel like it.

Bokeh, depiction around the frame, color

It is a very beautifully blurred lens.

The color is not bad even with a high key that is slightly skipped.
Recently, it seems that the color remaining in this high key has become faintly different from Russian lenses. It’s not good or bad.

The angle of view is 29mm and the shortest shooting distance is 25cm, so I wonder if it will be close to Zeiss’s famous Flektogon.
Since this lens seems to have been manufactured around 1966, it may have competed in the market as a lens with the same zebra pattern. That’s pretty good.

The intensity of the sunlight wasn’t too weak, and it might have been just right, but the depiction in the shade was very nice.

It feels like the front and back bokeh melts naturally without going wild, so it’s easy to take and handle without thinking too much.

If the frame is made brighter by emphasizing white, it will give a feeling of saturation like a Russian lens, but probably because of the wide-angle lens, the amount of peripheral light will drop more strongly. I think it’s easier to make pictures because the elements on the lens side are easy to understand.

It’s a fairly narrow path, but it looks wide at a wide angle of 29 mm, which is a strange feeling. It’s not 28mm, which is a general division of 29mm, but I wonder if there is any problem in that area.

A sunflower just asking me to take a picture.
Standing outside the signboard for ¥ 300 means drinking here. I wondered if I was definitely drinking with someone.

Resolution, sharpness when the aperture is closed, aberration

I took it with F8.0.

Oh, it feels good to squeeze it.
I feel that the contrast is similar to Orestor 100mm.

This is taken near the open, but it is a mechanical one and I took it with the intention of taking a sharp picture.
I feel that such a large shot is a delicious part of a quasi-wide-angle lens. recently.

It’s a gap between apartments, but there is a signboard in a narrow alley, so everyone will be interested in it. “Only the signboard” and the poster. I am also one of the people who came in with interest.

The old-fashioned saturation and the dark areas that are not so strong are like film. With a 29mm angle of view, you can use about 43.5mm with APS-C and about 58mm with M4 / 3, so you can think of it as a relatively easy-to-use lens.

The real sizzle feeling is wonderful. This sharpness when squeezed and the overall soft image seem to be incomparable.

Actually, It was a little lighter blue, but the taste is similar to the wall of an old folk house.

After reviewing this Sharp item, I came up with the idea, but in the end, it’s easy for halation to occur like an old lens.
If you want to add contrast, you can take a slightly different image by attaching a hood.
On the contrary, in the case of a soft and squeezed picture like the one above, I think it is better not to put on the hood.

In such a shade, a dark part appears at once. After all halation seems to be easy to occur. Well, it’s a 1960s lens, and I think it’s rather easy to handle.

The atmosphere of hard bokeh when squeezed is similar to the bokeh seen with Orestor 100mm.
If you have a frame with a long distance and there is a focus surface nearby, you can easily get the details in the back by squeezing it.

A hexagonal ghost in the shape of a tight aperture came out.
The dark part is also completely white. Well, I think it’s okay for this to be backlit.

M42 Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestegon 29mm F2.8 1966

This case is a zebra version that has not been absorbed by Pentacon and still has the Meyer-Optik name on the fingerboard.

After this, it seems that it became a lens that was absorbed by Pentacon and changed its name to Pentacon with the same contents, and according to the reputation of the Web, it seems that the subsequent model can be taken better, but somehow I feel the value of being Meyer, complete I’m a lens enthusiast, so I searched for this version lol.

This lens-like photo

If you think about it on a street shot basis, it’s easy to shoot open, so this is the most standard way to shoot.
APS-C size and M4/3 seem to be more interesting.

for POrtlait

Portraits will be a little difficult.
Wide-angle portraits are at least up to 35mm.

Where I walked

I had a knee injury due to futsal, so I tried not to walk around the city for about a month, but since it has almost completely healed, I will walk hard again from this month.

“Ogikubo” city shooting recommendation ★★★★☆=4

First of all, I decided to take the JR train from the previous Kichijoji and go up the line.
And I chose Ogikubo because it seems to be a high-ranking regular in the city I want to live in.

The signboard of the station is small and funny for the scale of the station.

Looking at the map of the station, I was wondering whether to go out from the north or south exit, but I dared to go to the one with a large building.
Somehow I felt that there was a culture in the building.

At the roundabout at the north exit, there was a donut shop that was perfect for filling the stomach of a city walk. The donut used for the photo of the door.
I just got up and came here without eating anything, so I got it immediately. It is quite delicious when fried.

Then, I wandered down the street of a small shopping street behind the donut shop.
There were many shops that I didn’t open on Sundays, but I feel that there were many shops that seemed to be good, such as a quick and tasty lunch, on a street with an old-fashioned atmosphere (I’m not sure because it’s closed). did)

A little away from the station and crossing the Ome Kaido, I found two small shopping streets in a narrow alley with small shops when I thought of it as a residential area.
It’s calm around here and looks very good for walking around town and relaxing dates.

In the above picture, it looks like nothing, but there are simple and calm shops along the street, and it is a nice street with a calm atmosphere.

Further stroll along the back streets around the north exit.
There are many chain stores around here, and it feels normal.

Then, when I returned near the station and sat down thinking that it was about to end today, I found a signboard for the batting cage over the building!

I’ve shaken it.

After all, when I was tired, I didn’t reach the south side of the station at all, so I decided to divide it into two times, following Kichijoji. Next time I will walk on the south side.

A picture of the Osho Gyoza set meal that I ate on my way home came out. ^^
It’s pretty easy to take a hood when you get close to 25 cm.

About Camera


Raw development

Development is Adobe Bridge CC 2017, so I want to keep the characteristics of the lens in the photograph, so I do not change the contrast or saturation at all, no adjustment, no filter.
Occasionally, the brightness is adjusted according to the amount of exposure.

Blog supplement

Flektogon is recommended as an old quasi-wide-angle lens.
Please compare it with this article.
Flektogon 35mm F2.4 black which is blur and gradation expression are wonderful. in Inokashira Park.
