Enlarger + VC: enlarging lens quality
Hello and thank you for all information I could gather on contact printing so far. I am using somebody else´s enlarger to contact print my 8x10 rollo-pyro negs on VC paper using split grading. I now want to buy the cheapest enlarger I can with a confortable multigrade function to do the same thing at home. Does the quality of the enlarger lens play any role in the final result when contact printing? It is clear to me that the illumination should be even in your paper format but that is all I know. I am being proposed a Rogonar lens which has only three elements...do you think that this is quite OK?
