Meyer Gorlitz Primoplan 1:1.9 f=5.8cm is normal prime lens for SLR cameras.

Uncoated and marketed as a fast, low light lens, in its day it was a star performer.  My version from 1942 was coated after the war, likely in Netherlands by Old Delft.  It is very sharp, noticably sharper then the post-war 1950's version - which is still a very good performer. 

Of note, the filter size is a very odd 39.5mm.
