A rather strange lens.

Made for British Corfield cameras. These had a strange persicope focusing device.

These are M39, with same register as Leica, but are not rangefinder-coupled. So they could maybe be used on a micro 4/3 digital, but not very useful on Leica, Zorki, etc.

Unbelievable - we do find every day "new" lenses.

the early lenses were made by British Optical Lens Co in the Midlands.
The later 'zebra' type lenses were indeed Enna made in Germany.
As focussing for all Periflexes was through the lens by Periscope there was no need for
auto diaphragms.
