Biotar 58 - the classic and the Biotars

Launched in the mid-1930s, the original Biotar 2/58 was offered for about 25 years, making it the longest and best-selling Biotar in this lens series to date. The new version of the extremely popular, very versatile lens, also delivers in its modern version, as Biotar 58 f1.5 II, its incomparable charm and comes up with excellent imaging characteristics.

The fastest Biotar 58 ever!

With the new Biotar 58 f1.5 II, an absolute classic has been revived and perfected at the same time. Intensive development work has made it possible to retain the image language, the bokeh and the otherwise so popular characteristics of the original Biotar 58 f2.0, while at the same time increasing the speed to f1.5. Thus, both new Biotar editions, the Biotar 75 II and the Biotar 58 II, offer a speed of f1.5.

Biotar bokeh as you know and love it.

Spinning highlights in the background are the hallmark of Biotar photography. The new Biotar 58 f1.5 II also draws highlights in the out-of-focus plane as swirls of light balls. At the same time, it flatters any portrait with its wonderful color reproduction, beautiful sharpness gradients and natural image compression. In certain situations, you create a three-dimensional look that makes the subject literally jump out of the picture. Of course, you can reduce the effect by stopping down and at the same time increase the already high sharpness even more and get finest resolution in all image areas.

Versatile bokeh and mood catcher.

The Biotar 58 f1.5 II, like the Biotar 75 f1.5 II, can draw swirling, dreamy, or soft bokeh (sometimes all at once). Likewise, it can produce a butterfly-shaped bokeh gradient. Unlike some modern lenses that are designed for a 1:1 representation of reality, our biotars can capture moods, emotions, and the magic of special moments. Even slightly stopped down, the Biotar 58 f1.5 II draws a very high level of sharpness across the entire image and because of its more 'normal' angle of view, compared to the Biotar 75 f1.5 II, it can be used in many disciplines such as fashion, wedding, architecture, sports and even macro. The Biotar 58 f1.5 II provides many creative options that can be combined to create distinctive image compositions.
