    I just got a Beseler 8x10 VXL enlarger and would like to use an El-Nikkor 240mm with it. The El-Nikkor looks like it might be too big, but its diameter is a little smaller than the lens board. Has any one used it 240 with that enlarger, if so, were there custom changes needed? Thanks.

    El Nikkor 240mm lens for 8x10 enlarger

    I have used an El Nikkor 240mm enlarging lens on my DeVere 5108 enlarger for many years and have been extremely impressed with its performance; I dont see why this lens would not function with your 8x10
