    I don't care if it's the rarest thing on earth, the pits in the glass make it a $3000 paper weight.

    If that description is correct you won't even be able to use it to enlarge Minox negatives.

    So is it, or is it not a Luminar clone? (Those will cover 6x9, IIRC)

    lenses like that are designed for very high magnifications and are supposed to be mounted on a bellows. I have no idea what the coverage would be. Where is Dan Fromm when you need him?

    Look at the link in post #4: 8mm.
    But what is most interesting is reversing it and using it for 6x9. That sounds like lots of fun.
