    Multicoated? If so I think I'll take it!

    I really have no idea what the coating is.

    Far to cheap by rather a large factor :D Not multi-coated though, but it doesn't need to be.

    These are great lenses for 5x4 enlargers, I've had 2 since the mid 70's and they are extremely sharp even with big enlargements 30"x24" etc, and I've made 12b foot wide prints with one as well, no fall off at the corners.

    I quite agree on the price thing. Just doesn't seem like you can give away enlarging equipment anymore. Prices in general are taking a pretty decent nosedive.

    Thanks for the information. I bought it to use on my Chromega 5D-XL enlarger for the 3.25"x4.25" RB Auto Graflex that I bought last Saturday.

    Now to find a negative holder for the 3.25"x4.25" negatives.
