Why not just half of Dagor? Unscrew front lens group,
leave rear one - you get:

Twice the focal,
Half the speed.
Very nice 

Soft focus,
for no price. ;-)

I am frequetly doing this with my 6.8/135 C.E.Riese Doppel 
Anastigmat for portraits and landscapes (thats an old Dagor
type lens; the funniest thing is that this uncoated, old 
lens managed to get pretty nice blue coatings - just in 
effect of years and years of life ;) Some atmospheric 
elements deposited presumably on optical surfaces, giving
very nice and smooth, very light blue coating..
