    Hi All,

    I'm looking to pick up an 80 or 90mm to use on my Saunders/LPL enlarger.

    Research suggests the 80mm El-Nikkor 5.6 is a good choice. I'd be happy to pick up something similar/APUG-recommended though.

    I'm looking to print B&W, 6x6 and 6x7, in the 8x8 to 16x16 range. Haven't done it in a while, and am just getting set up for it again.

    Thanks!

    I am quite pleased with the results that I get from my Fujinon ES 105mm. And the little extra on the focal length makes smaller prints easier, at least to my mind.

    ENlarger lens..

    I have a Computar variable focal 50 to 80 mm............I am told this was a computer generated lens and extreemly sharp and a very rare lens.

    I also have a El Nikor 80mm 5.6 and schnieder 80 mm ....
