eyemo lenses?

Recommended Posts

anybody know if there were any lenses that were made for use on the eyemo were any good or not? If there were I would be interested in finding some and using them on other cameras. I know there were a few makes etc but Im wondering if they would produce nice images on film.

I've got a 25mm Cooke Speed Panchro up on the 'bay right now that was a great, sharp lens.


The "General Scientific" lenses (I've got one of their teles) are also sharp and solidly built.


All of those Eyemo lenses are so old that you pretty much have to look at each one on a case-by-case basis.

Taylor-Hobson (the original Cooke) were for many years Bell and Howell's standard lens supplier, and Eyemos were often sold with Cooke lenses. For decades Cooke Speed Panchros in their various incarnations were among the best and most widely used 35mm cine lenses available.




As Patrick mentioned, given their age, each lens needs to be individually assessed. Any damage to front or rear elements, internal fogging or fungus, shiny or oily iris blades, loose elements etc will impact on a lens's performance.
