Meyer Optik Görlitz Biotar 75 f/1.5 II lens for Pentax K-mount now available

The previously reported new and improved Meyer Optik Görlitz Biotar 75 f/1.5 II lens for Pentax K-moun is now officially released (the full press release can be found here). Pre-orders are now open at B&H Photo (Meyer Optik Görlitz lenses are also sold at Adorama).

“In the 1930s, design genius Willi Merté created the original Biotar 75 f1.5. In no time at all, the lens gained a legendary reputation and achieved great success. Due to the Second World War and the high production costs for that time, the production of the popular Biotar 75 was discontinued very quickly. Its great popularity and the small number of well-preserved specimens at the same time make the Biotar 75 an extremely rare lens.”
