Meyer-Optik Görlitz Orestegor 300mm

Images are very sharp even when the lens aperture is wide open. Remember this lens can be used on a medium format camera, so when used on a full frame camera you will not have the lack of sharpness in the corners. What you will basically obtain on a 35mm format is the center goodness. The images turn out sharp from corner to corner. Some people argue it is even better than the Sonnar 300 f4 from Carl Zeiss.

Also there is no vignetting. While most (vintage) lenses will have a sharp center of the image and vignetting in the corners, the Meyer-Optik Görlitz 300 4 Orestegor is simply constantly good, from corner to corner. So if you use a full frame sensor and want this type of look, that is a huge advantage.

Meyer-Optik Görlitz


The Meyer-Optik Görlitz 300 4 Orestegor (also branded as Pentacon 300) is a 300mm prime tele lens initially manufactured by the Meyer-Optik Görlitz company in East Germany. The Orestegor was introduced in 1967 as a succesor to the Meyer-Optik Telemegor 4.5 / 300. The Orestegor was later re-branded as Pentacon 300 f4, after the Meyer-Optik Görlitz brand was discontinued.

Meyer-Optik Görlitz was founded in 1896 by optician Hugo Meyer (May 21, 1863 - March 1, 1905) and businessman Heinrich Schätze. The company got off to a successful start with the development of the wide-angle Aristostigmat lens and the subsequent acquisition of Optical Institute Schulze and Billerbeck, the manufacturers of “Euryplan lenses”, as they were called at the time.
