    Printing 120 negs

    I have a Durst M605 equipped with an el-Nikkor 50mm lens. Should I be looking for another lens for my 120 negs? Any suggestions?


    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    You need 75-80mm for printing 120. Someone's selling EL-Nikkor lenses here right now in that size.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Minolta E.Rokkor 75mm f4.5 lenses are excellent and cheap... the Meopta Anaret S & Meogon S lenses are superb too.

    Hope this helps,

    I've got the Nikkor 75mm and Minolta 75mm. The Minolta is a stunning lens and sells for a ridiculously low price on the auction sites.
    So many drummers, so little time.

    You don't say what format.

    Most of the 80mm cover up to 6x7
    105 for 6x9

    Yes, a 50mm lens will vignette. There a number of really good lenses out ther, make sure you get a 6 element lens, like the best Schneider ones. pyrometol

    True, I find my 4 element Tessar design Nikkor 75, kinda soft on the edges for 6x6, razor sharp at the center.
    I think it`s great for 35mm, if you aren`t doing big enlargements and can tolerate the arm exercize ...

    Cheers

    Rodenstock Rodagon's are fantastic but on the upper end in price for a used lens. Look for a good 6 element lens. As a general rule 6x6= 80mm, 6x7=90mm, 6x9=105mm.
    DIGITAL IS FOR THOSE AFRAID OF THE DARK.

    80mm works just fine for my 6x7s
