Well, today I made prints to compare to image quality between my 'new' Kodak 50mm 4.5 Enlarging Ektar and my Leica 50mm 4.5 Focotar 2. I made 11x14-inch prints of an older image I made in France back in the 1980s. This is a print from a negative I have made many times so I am familiar with it. This is not scientific, but subjective. I will not scan them as they are too big for my scanner. If there were noticeable differences you would not see them on a computer screen. The fact is that I am having a very difficult time telling one from the other. Truthfully the Ektar is that good. This is an excellent example of the Ektar...the glass is like new. I keep going back to the two prints and looking at the little bits which might be a giveaway to which is 'better' or I should even say 'different.' They are remarkably the same. The folks at Kodak really knew their stuff back then!
