    I don't know many old lens, but I do have a couple old Cooke, and somehow I picked the Cooke lens image correctly. Must be that brass rim :-)

    Thank you, but at the end of the day: even though these lenses are so cool, "just" for Collection, they are but a tool - and the challenge is to try to find the right tool for the right motive... (which can also be said for developing techniques..)
