"Don't buy a TLR with a triplet lens!!! Those are toys, soft, not able to take sharp pictures, garbage, yadda yadda yadda."

Triplets... looked down upon, misunderstood, nearly no one loves them. Everyone wants fancy Tessar or Planar type lenses in their TLRs.




Triplet-shooters! Let us show the world what our simple 3 element lenses are capable of!

I want to see your shots taken with triplet lenses! So take out your Triotars, Novars, whatevers and shoot shoot shoot!



f4.0 + missed focus - scratched uncoated CZJ Triotar in Rolleicord II (sorry for the cross-post)

RFF has a Forum HELP! forum with a sticky thread on this subject... Suggest you look at more recent posts in that long thread:

No need to be afraid of a triplet. The term means that there are three groups of elements, and not necessarily only three elements. The Tessar, for example, has four elements, even though it is a triplet. Why? Because its rear group is a cemented doublet--meaning two elements glued together to function as one. Four elements, three groups. The same goes for the Leitz Elmar. The Zeiss Triotar as I recall, does have just three elements in three groups; a cost cutting measure, as I recall. So: not all triplets are created equal!

I always have thought triplet means three elements. Not that I am optical engineer or this is a deal breaker.

I need to put film through 2 120 Zeiss folders with triplet lenses so I will not argue but go out to come back with pictures.

Also, the Tessar was not based on the Cooke Triplet lens. They look similar but are in fact not related (same for the Leitz Elmar vs. Tessar).
The Tessar evolved from the Zeiss Unar (4 elements, 4 groups) and Zeiss Protar (4 elements, 2 groups).

From a Balda Baldinar 45/2.8 lens. I think it's a triplet.

Another triple from me: Zeiss Ikon 518/16 with an f/3.5 Novar Anastigmat (OK, not a TLR, but a triplet anyway...):
