    Re: Dallmeyer 2B lens soft focus adjustment. Help required!

    Thank you Steven, Mark and goamules for your excellent suggestions! Unfortunately I haven't had the time to tackle the problem as yet but hope to give it my full attention this weekend with the help of a friend. Steven, there is no thread visible. I know this might seem like a stupid question... in which direction should I try to turn the soft focus ring... to the usual left?

    Understood - if you knew how many projects I have on a mental list of things to do....!

    If we talking about the notched rear adjustment half cell, than it is the usual anticlockwise to unscrew. The markings will give you some idea of whether it has been screwed in beyond the normal "stop" position.

    Anticlockwise... Thank you! Have you ever come across a cross-section drawing of the 2B or any similar Dallmeyer soft focus lens? All the best with your project list Steven!

    There are plenty!
    Here is an article by Dan.
    The Dallmeyer x-section is shown towards the bottom on the left. Note that the "pointer" shown at the top left is somewhat exagerated in length!

    Thank you Steven, What a wonderful resource 'Antique & Classic Cameras' is... I found the Dallmeyer section very interesting indeed! Thank you for the link! 'Pointer' duly noted!
