Kickstarter to revive the Primoplan f1.9/58 and Primoplan f1.9/75 lenses ends tomorrow

The Kickstarter project for the Meyer-Optik Primoplan 58mm f/1.9 lens ends tomorrow. So far over $780k were raised (the initial goal was $50k). In addition to the Primoplan 58mm f/1.9 lens, Meyer-Optik also included a new Primoplan 75mm f/1.9 lens for certain support price levels. Here are few sample images from the prototype Primoplan 75/f1.9 lens taken with a Nikon D800E by the German fashion photographer Benedikt Ernst:

Some background on the Primoplan: Meyer Optik developed the Primoplan line of the lenses in the 1930s to be used with the Ihagee Exakta, the world's first single-lens reflex camera. It stopped production in the 1950s as the East German government consolidated its camera and lens industry.
