    Hi All,

    I posted here several days ago about enlargers, and I have been looking around and found a decent deal (no real such thing on LF enlargers here) on a Fujinon A450 enlarger. It has negative carriers from 35mm to 4x5 as well as a pair of lenses. I have never used a Fujinon, so I am not sure if its worth my time or should I be holding out for something else.

    If anybody has any information I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanx Again!

    I use the latest version of a 50mm and 90mm Fujinon lenses. They are sharp and have very high resolutions (definitions).

    Generally speaking, Fujinon lenses produce softer and less grainy prints than Nikkor lenses.
