H Dallmeyer, London, 2D Patent, "unscrew for soft focus" n°71xxx. A very beautiful lens, Dallmeyer 2D is a soft focus lens, sought after for unique rendering in portraiture photography.
This is the late version of 2D, with the "unscrew for soft focus" system, much easier than the early versions. You can turn the back of the lens and put in front of one of the 4 different notches of the barrel to increase soft effect rendering. The original mounting flange is mounted on a extended wooden lensboard (82x82mm). Of course, you could unmount the flange and use your own lensboard.Brass barrel wears some signs of the years and is in good condition. Glasses are bright and complete, with slight cleaning marks and tiny dust. The iris turns as it should and is graduated from 6 to 32. Total length: 86mm (lens alone). Diameter at mounting thread: 50mm. Size of lensboard: 82x82mm and 65mm of extension. A very nice and rare optical tool, for artistic photographers, wet plate enthusiasts, and hobbyst ready to use this lens on digital cameras. Check out my other antique lenses for sale.
