    Recommend MF enlarger lens?

    I have a Durst M670 enlarger, and a Rodenstock Rodagon 50mm f2.8 lens which I love. I now want to get myself an enlarger lens that can enlarge my 6x6 negatives -- but would like to take some recommendations as to which lens to look for. I am trawling eBay...

    Any opinions on the Rodenstock Ysaron 75mm? That's not a lens that comes up often...

    Thanks.

    I'm currently using an 80/4 Schneider Componon-S and I have no complaints.

    I really like my El Nikkor 80mm f/5.6.

    I'd recommend getting a nice 6 element 80mm or thereabouts: Componon-S, Rodagon, or Nikkor EL.

    50 minutes to go...

    Good luck,

    This is a great time to be buying these... With a little patience, you should be able to get a 6 element Componon-S, Rodagon or Nikon for a very good price. I think most people would agree that sample to sample variations are likely greater than differences between these three choices. If you're already a Rodagon fan, look for one of those. I've used the 80mm in various versions and they've all been exceptional.

    I don't know about the Meopta Anaret 80mm specifically, but I do see Meopta lenses on eBay from time to time. I see a Belar 55mm, a Belar 75mm, and an Anaret 105mm right now. If for some reason you wanted an Anaret 80mm specifically, you could set up a search and check back every now and again. You might have to wait a while, but you'd probably eventually get it.

    I don't happen to own any Meopta gear, but I hear that some of their enlargers and lenses used a 25mm mount. Thus, you might need a 25mm-to-39mm adapter to use such a lens on an enlarger that provides a 39mm mount.
