Hi Clyde,
The original range of lenses for the 641, 642 series from the early 1960s included a 25mm, 32mm and 40mm made by Rank Taylor Hobson. I have a 32mm and a 40mm lens.

Clyde,
All these lenses were F1.4. There were also lenses made by Dallmeyer in Bell & Howell 52mm sleeves including a 0.8 inch but they were all around F1.9 and thus they were not ideal for a large picture.
