    I found a nice condition Rodenstock Rodagon 50mm F/2.8 (looks like the current model) enlarging lens selling for $75. What do you think of the quality and the price?

    Thanks!

    Good Morning, Josef,

    Should be an excellent choice. Patience might bring you little better price for the Rodagon or a similarly excellent El-Nikkor 2.8, but if it's a lifetime investment for you and shipping issues can be avoided, I don't see any problem with the $75 involved.

    Josef, I have a 50mm Rodagon that I would sell to you for less than that. Let me know if you are interested.
