    Help identifying a RO&C Co lens

    Hello All, just a shot in the dark here but Iím wondering if anyone may have some information on this lens? I know itís a Rochester Optics & Camera Company lens, and have done some research to include checking scans on old manufacturer catalogs on http://www.piercevaubel.com/cam/catalogsrochester.htm
    but have yet to be able to find one that looks just like it. Thanks in advance. Josh

    I think the key search word should be Wollensak - rather than the “Rochester” companies. This is where I found the following pages.

    But it is possible there are other combinations of auto shutters/three focus.

    Also, Could it be Ross Optical and not Rochester?

    I do believe this solves it. It is the Bausch & Lomb 8x10 Click image for larger version.
