    That's a 1952 Thales Angenieux zoom lens for a movie camera. The
    designers won a Scientific & Technical Oscar from the Hollywood
    Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1964 and 1989 for this
    lens design. The firm is now known for their Optimo movie lenses.

    I seem to be in places lately where there are old cameras. Today I
    went to an exhibition at Crealde School of Art and spotted these in
    the Photography office:
