    I'm in need of a good 80mm enlarger lens, looking for a Schneider Componon or Rodenstock Rodagon. If you had a 90 that'd be awesome too. I may just pick one up on the bay but thought I'd try here first. The most I want to spend is $75 but would love something for less!.

    Let me know what you have!

    I have a mint condition Schneider Componon-S 100mm f5.6 I'm not using. Better than an 80 (so says Ansel Adams). I'd sell it for $75 plus shipping.

    The 100 Componon-S is a great MF lens. Had one for 25 plus years and still love it. Much better than the 80 mm versions and good for 135 if you have the column height. L

    I use a 100mm or 135mm for MF. Use 150mm for 4x5. Never had a "good" 80mm so don't know if I'm missing/gaining by using what I have. :smile:

    Thanks to all for your offers. I ended up going with the Schneider 100mm.
