Boring pictures but these are a bit of a test on a 13.5 cm Dallmeyer 13.5cm Dalrac f4.5 LTM that I dug out recently. The fringing is visible especially in the 100% crops and the colour is rather eccentric but not bad otherwise. I have a copy of a 1955 AP magazine containg an advertisement for this lens giving the price as £40 - about the same as the contemporary 13.5 cm Hektor.

The Dallmeyer lenses were very popular during a period when Leica lenses could not be imported into the UK, except for professional purposes. Excellent performance shown in your pictures.
