    me too. For smaller prints, I use a 100mm so the enlarger head is not so close to the baseboard.

    I confused...80mm may or may not cover the negative and a 105mm will project too large an image???? Help!

    I think you might be confusing two of the previous posts.

    tleirto said that the 105mm provided too little magnification for 6x7 and his enlarger

    optique responded and said that a 150mm provided too much magnificatio for the much larger 4x5 negative and his enlarger

    IIRC, your enlarger won't take 4x5, so it makes no sense to consider 150mm lenses

    If you have a long enough column, a 105mm lens might fill your needs, but 90mm or 100mm would be better.

    As mentioned, an 80mm that covers will often work well too, but may not be quite as convenient.
