Meyer Optik Görlitz Lens Archive

This page provides an overview of lenses made by Meyer-Optik Görlitz from the beginning, then known as Hugo-Meyer-Görlitz, until their closing after the German reunification. Since 2014 the brand is active again, producing lenses using the same design principles: www.meyer-optik-goerlitz.de

Further information about Exakta cameras where most Meyer lenses where used with can be found in Captain Jack's Exakta Pages and the camera museum of Kurt Tauber.

If you got something which is not found in this list I'm happy to hear about it. Please contact me via info@cpqrst.de.
