Dallmeyer is an English cinematic lens manufacturer that is famous for its out of focus rendering and oil-painting quality bokeh.
Due to its limited production numbers that demands very high prices on the market. It’s cine lenses can be graded from the following series: Kinematogrph, Super-Six, Dallac, Speed and Septac, which is the ultimate and the rarest. However, Dallmeyer is most well-known for its Super-Six series, which offers strong 3D image quality, unique colour rendering, swirly and oil-painting like bokeh.
There are significant differences in image quality and price between each series. Also within each series there are both coated and uncoated versions, with the recognisable “DC” Dallmeyer Coating but uncoated versions are generally more rare and collectible.
