An antique english lens engraved. Dallmeyer London PENTAC F/2.9 F=8 230042.
A classic fast large format lens, from British Air Ministry made by Dallmeyer during WWII. Great portrait lens with amazing rendering and bokeh on 4X5 camera (I used on on my Graflex Speed Graphic Pacemaker) for best results than my Kodak Aero Ektar. The black barrel wears a lot of paint loss spots. Glasses have slight haze, ligth scratches and dust. Iris ring is hard to turn but in working order: when I was using it, I put a drop of lighter fluid on ring and it turns smoothly, long enough for a shooting session.
But few days later, hardness comes back. So, should you are ready for a CLA'd in a repair store, should you use it as I did! (if you are lucky enouch to own the JoLo lensboard for using an Aero Ektar on Graflex Speed Graphic, dont forget this lens could be onto adapted).
