  22. Re: Let's see your landscape lens (with meniscus / achromat lens)

    Thanks. Not sure whether we can consider a Marumi a - vintage - landscape lens; it seems a slip-on sort of filter which one put in front of an existing digital or 35mm SLR-lens like a close up filter...

    yep, just corrected
  26. Re: W. Butcher & Son, Rapid Rectilinear

    The lens mentions "W. Butcher & Son, Blackheath"

    From what I recently found on internet, William Frederick Butcher (1866 - 1936) started together with his father William Butcher Sr. (1840-1903)...

    Most probably the lens is screwed in a helical (or in German: Schneckengang); lot of German lenses were delivered in such helicals.
