    I have two nice 150mm f4.5 enlarging lenses for 4X5 negatives. Lenses are both M39 thread mount. Neither have a retaining ring but they can be had for $8 from Calumet Photo.

    Both lenses have a few marks in the coating on the front element but not enough to cause any degradation of image quality and since you won't be shooting into the sun; no loss of contrast either.

    I put one of the lenses on my Beseler 45 MXT enlarger with a 4X5 negative and it produced a very sharp image at f4.5, very bright as well. Lenses have a white aperture scale but it is not luminescent.

    Asking price is $20 Each Shipped in CONUS by USPS First Class

    Payment by PayPal, preferably as a "gift" so I do not incur fees.

    Please PM with any questions. I am open to trades for these lenses as well - I don't have anything I currently "need" but who knows...you may know what I want and it is sitting in a drawer collecting dust! LOL

    Did you actually print the picture, or just project onto an easel and look at it?

    Just projected it onto the easel with a piece of laser photo paper under the easel I use for a spacer when focusing with my grain focuser.

    I will give these until later today and will put them on the auction site with the rest of the bits I had for sale that are headed there today, hate to do it, don't really like selling on eBay but need to get rid of this stuff and am saving to pay for a Kodak 2D I have one the way to me now
