The TTH Cooke lens arrived today, 24hr delivery on an item bought last Friday (6 days earlier), when I called the company yeaterday it had not been despatched.

However the lens is optically superb, the paint on the barrell worn but that was why it was only 20/$32 and it's much better than described A similar lens is on ebay for 17x the price !!!!!

New pictures in a day or two but I've now made a lens board, recessing the mount slightly, and it's recovered to match the camera and the lens hood/flap. So next it's change the ribbons on the shutter curtains and final re-assembly.
