A. Schacht Inc. Press Release
On January 18th at 10 am EST (media embargo), A. Schacht Inc. is launching a Kickstarter Campaign (preview link) for the Travegon 50mm f:2.5, the combination of a close-to-perfect optical system designed for mirrorless cameras in a compact lens housing.
When developing the Travegon 50, A. Schacht had one goal: meet the most stringent quality demands for analog and digital photography for optical and mechanical performance while remaining at a price affordable for the general public. The result is an opto-mechanical masterpiece of perfect craftsmanship with a combination of high precision aluminum and brass being united into a dream like symbiosis. The Travegon 50 shows outstanding performance when it comes to contrast, resolution, structure and it comes at a price much more affordable than its competitors.
The Travegon 50 takes powerful photographs in any setting and its classical design makes it the ideal standard lens and an outstanding choice for image quality, size, and weight. It is compact and lightweight with a classical double gauss optical design and a focal length that provides close to human eye natural perspectives. Its exquisite image quality goes all the way to the edges of the image field, and excellent contrast is achieved at all apertures. In addition, the Travegon 50 provides incredible sharpness and an unobtrusive silky bokeh.
The Travegon 50 is only the first lens in a series that will span from 35mm to 135mm. All lenses are designed and meticulously assembled in Germany with internationally sourced components in order to produce the best quality and price.
The Travegon 50 will be available for an early-bird price of $599 for the first 24 hours. Prices will then start at $629. Lenses are expected to ship in July / August 2018.
