    Does anybody know something about this enlarging lens?
    I got it together with a MAGNIFAX3.
    Is it a wideangle lens for 6x7 ?
    How does it compare to other lenses ?
    And so on ...

    google found only polish sources; unfortunately I do not speak polish.

    Thanks

    The Meogon 5,6/60mm is suitable for 24X36 and 40X40mm

    All Meogon lenses are for Meopta "the state of the art quality", comparing with the Rodenstock Rodagon the latest Meogon versions 2,8/50mm and 4,0/80mm are just under that level.

    I have a Meogon 2,8/80mm for macro in the Zörk M.F.S.

    The meogon 5,6 are some of the best lens ever made by meopta , far better than their new 2,8 lens.
    I've got an old test comparing this lens with other brand lenses and it shows that this lens got the best mtf average ( border and center) than all the other lens (leitz include). The best diaph is 8 but you already get good result at 5.6.

    I forget to add that this lens was for 35mm, and really far better than a nikon 2.8
