    Easiest to find will be Componon S in Europe, and they are excellent lenses, available in all those sizes.

    I tend to favour the Rodenstock Rodagon-N

    However both the Rodagon or Componon-S are excellent lenses

    I also have had some mixed experiences with buying second hand enlarging lenses - therefore I would recommend buying new ones if you can afford them - http://www.robertwhite.co.uk/product...1868&PT_ID=444

    The enlarging lens is the most important lens in your camera system as all of your images go through this one lens

    Good luck

    Martin
