National Optical Co. Ltd. Leicester 4-inch f3.5 projection lens on Pentax K20D. No iris, that's mean all shoots were taken wide open. No tripod used, all hand held. Just testing the color. Comments on its performance are welcome! Smile

Very nice photographs. Lens produces deep rich colour which I like.

Thank you! The lens was made in Leicester, UK. Not sure if it is linked to Cooke/Taylor Hobson?? Question Question

National were a separate factory but were certainly linked to TT&H.

Thanks for the info. That's why the results look quite similar to TTH's lenses. Smile
