I used to own the 300mm f3.5. Super heavy. Used it on my Home Portrait Graflex. Reasonably sharp wide open, really beautiful falloff.

Hallo, friends!
I take it in my heands! :) And have some questions. Please help.

I for a long time searched for myself fast portrait lense with a simple design. Trioplan has most approached under characteristics. I searched Portrait-Trioplan, but unsuccessfully... Also has found in Siberia in Russia at the descendant of photographers usual Trioplan. All inscriptions on it: Meyer Gorlitz Nr.1071127 Trioplan 3.5/210. Aperture range is 3.5-32 and it has 19 blades. Glass is uncoated. http://www.prorock.info/11/Trioplan.jpg I have bought it for 70$. From here the first question: it is not dear for Trioplan?

Then I have noticed, that the maximal aperture is very similar with Portrait-Trioplan 8 1/4 inch f/3.2. I have compared schemes and have been strongly surprised by their similarity! http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/info/meyerc/p21.html At not- Portrait Trioplan aperture was 4.5, 6.3 etc and front glass-element was convex from two parties. And at mine, as well as at Portrait Trioplan a forward element convex in front and flat behind. Like that: http://www.prorock.info/11/Trioplan2.jpg But a back element from lateral aspect convex, and with internal almost flat - slightly convex. And at mine Trioplan the groove for lense-hood inside, not as Portrait Trioplan. Further the second question: my Trioplan is evolution of old Portrait Trioplan? How it will behave at shooting with the open aperture? (while I do not have opportunity it to photograph - I shall explain further).

The girl who has sold to me this objective and the camera has told, that its parents photographers have taken out this camera from Germany precisely before war. But, by numbers from this reference http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=004uzc I have an objective of 1949. To whom to trust?:-)
