Why doesn't the Chinese make Trioplan replicas?
2

Hello!

I just thought of this.

7artisans for example should be able to make and sell triplet lenses for cheaper than Meyer-Optik Görlitz.

Meyer-Optik can't hold a patent on the Cooke triplet right?

So far I've only seen a Leica Summicron 35mm f2 version 1 replica. I like this and want to see more. I'm not sure how they can do this legally.

Is there a market for $100 Trioplan replicas? With a different name of course.
