    Sir:
    I recently purchased a Rodenstock Rodagon 300mm F1:5.6 lens. I hope to use the lens in an 8x10 enlarger. I have several questions.
    1. The lens appears to be coated. If that is true is this a single or a multi coated lens?
    2. Is this an six element lens?
    3. It appears to have a thread pitch of 72mm. Is that true and if so where could I go to purchase one?
    Thanks in advance
