Carl Zeiss Pancolar 1.4/55mm, yellow coating, M42 mount, very nice serial #8400034. Also, please not that it is marked with title'Carl Zeiss Jena' rather than more common variant which is just'aus Jena'. The focus ring on the lens is very smooth correct. Glasses are in good to great condition, there are some regular cleaning traces and particle traces due to age but no fungus or haze.Please see two pictures with the flashlight shining through the lens. The aperture fully works in order in manual mode when the aperture pin is pressed against an adapter for digital camera. When aperture is in automatic mode by default. It will close down to any set value as it should.
However, there is one small thing that I must mention here. If aperture is set to some bigger value, like 2, 2.8 or 4, then when the aperture pin is slowly released, the aperture blades stay sticking out a bit. However if the pin is released fast, then the aperture blades don't stick. If aperture is set to some smaller values, like 5.6, 8, 11, 16 or 22, then the aperture blades go back as they should when the pin is released, because there is more pressure/force on them. This is very common minor issue for the entire generation of Zeiss zebra lenses from Jena and most of the sellers won't even mention them because they are assumed.
However, since this is very very expensive lens, I must of course mention it in detail. The preset pin locks the aperture down to a specific position when used on original Pentacon Super body. The switch ot this pin will be set to its standard position by default for ready to use in manual mode. It comes with front and rear caps.This lens was tested with Sony Alpha A7s digital full frame camera, please see sample images. First two images of the landscape is done at full f 1.4 aperture, with different focus point, and the third one with around f 5.6-8.
The last portrait picture is done indoor at f 1.4 aperture without flash. More samples will be provided upon request.
Overall the lens in great condition. The item will be protected with thick bubble-wrap and placed in double-cardboard box for maximum protection in transport.
