    I have a 80 mm 5.6 Rodagon that I bought back in the 80's. I haven't used it in a number of years. The lens performed as well as a Schneider Companon that I also have. I used my Rodagon for both color and black and white.

    I am not sure what your lens board is designed to accept on your model Durst enlarger. I would assume that it would fit. My Rodagon 80 is the same size mount as my Schneider Componan 85 and 135 and the Rodagon 50.

    I'm with Don. I use a 150mm Rodagon f/5.6 and it has to be about the best lens I own.

    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!

    The mounting thread of the rodagon 80/5.6 is likely to be 39 mm, like most enlarging lenses.

    But does the 370 handle roll film formats? If not, the 80mm enlarging lens is perhaps not the best choice.
