Hi Greg,Who made lenses for Edison?
I have to admit it was a bit of a surprise, seeing one of my old posts resurrected this morning, and while I can't answer many of your questions with any finality, I can say that Bausch and Lomb did make lenses for Edison, as seen above in Goamule's post and in my own experience. I have taken a number of pictures now with that Edison lens (not scanned) and I like the "feel" of it. It is physically similar to the one pictured on the Kinetoscope, but then, so are most magic lantern lenses from that period. I found mine by dumb luck. Good luck in your own search and happy new year!
