    Kodak Projection Anastigmat 105mm F:4.5 s/n none $20

    Made in USA Retaining Ring(about 39mm?) Metal front cap

    Appears to be in very good condition, never used by myself, based on Kodak enlarging lens that I use, my guess is that this is a very good lens.

    Pictures available

    Sounds like a deal to me! If it's still available I'm interested. Will you send me a PayPal invoice, or how do you want to work this?

    Any chance there are aperture blades in that lens? If there aren't, you'll be exposing wide open all the time.

    HUH?

    Don't all enlarger lens have aperture blades? I guess the word Projection fooled you, but enlargers also project an image.

    This one is no exception. It has 16 blades as best I could count them.

    I asked because I have a lens marked 'projection lens', and no aperture blades. Thanks for the clarification.
