    Rodagon-G vs. G-Componon

    Which one performs better at 10-30x? I'm interested in 150mm and 360mm focal lengths.

    Rodagon G is generally considered the standard.

    Apo-Componon-HM is probably the best high magnification enlarging lens one can get but they never made it in 300mm.

    The Apo Componon apparently competed with the Apo Rodagon N, not with the Rodagon G. The pro mural labs here mostly used Apo Nikkors,
    or when the needed a stop more speed, Rodagon G's.

    Must be massive enlargements to need 150 and 300mm -G series lenses! Rodagon-G is easier to find than G-componon, but neither are common.

    Given the scarcity and price, I'd suggest you buy whichever one you can find...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    It'll be quite some time before I can prepare a darkroom large/long enough to make ten-foot-wide prints so I have some time to find the right lenses.
