    How much is this enlarging lens worth?

    I have a Rodenstock APO Rodagon N 80mm F4 enlarging lens gathering dust at the moment and it is in good condition, just wondering how much these are worth on the second hand market?

    many thanks

    That's difficult because you can pick up these lenses for practically nothing, enlargers are often just thrown out, stuck in skips with the lenses still attached.

    However realistically somewhere between about £50 - £80 in the UK, although through a shop it might be slightly more.

    Probably sell on Ebay for $200-275. This lens still has good value and lots of people want it. I'd sure like one but price is still too high for me to justify.

    That's a good lens, and it originally sold for over US$500 new. The ebay estimate of $200 - 275 is probably a good one, but you might get more for one in mint condition.

    I think ChuckP's estimate is about right. I bought a 90mm version of this lens for around $200 a few years ago on eBay.
