    Headsup on a rare Leitz 2C

    Just a heads up as these are seldom seen and benchmark quality. No, it isn't mine.

    Hey! I have one of those sitting out in the shed. I had better keep an eye on the auction to see what it fetches. Anyone want to make me an offer now?

    Very nice enlarger. Put some up to date optics on it and you would be ready to go.

    Photo shows the 100mm f/5.6 Focotar II lens which was the creme de la creme and is still a damn fine lens. These are like hen's teeth to find. Head has the filter drawer which makes printing with VC filters a breeze. Three negative carriers is nice. Having all the masks is very nice, too. It's a great medium format enlarger. The 60mm lens for 35mm is nothing to write home about, but works OK. For that format you're better off with a Focomat Ic or Valoy II with the latest glass. Unfortunately no other lenses fit this enlarger.

    I've had two IIc's; just sold one. Shipping is a bear. I had to have a crate built to ship it safely. FedEx ground was very reasonable.

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    What good eyes you have WFW. You can indeed see the II on the 100mm Focatar. Actually the remark about lenses was more of a troll than anything else. Yes the 100mm Focatar II remains to this day a very nice lens.
