    Wondering if anyone has any experience or information on this lens. Year, Quality and approx value

    The seller states...

    Optical: The optics are very good. There are very minor cleaning marks or scratches. No debris or fungus.
    Mechanical: Shutter speeds are all working and accurate.

    Very sharp, I have one on a 9x12 camera it's a dialyte the can fetch £30-£100. I have a choice of 3 135mm lenses in working shutter you can try. They would be inexpensive, I'd forgotten about them they are in my darkroom.

    Would this type of lens give me that low contrast softer look I am striving for Ian

    Yes it's quite low contrast.
