    Enlarging Lenses

    The book "Post Exposure" by Ctein has a good discussion of the relative merits of the various enlarging lenses that are commonly used. I recommend it.
    Cheers,

    Ian, the referenced brochure says: "Enlargements with the four-element COMPONAR-S produce high-contrast and brilliant prints, from either color or black-and-white negatives." So, while it is a budget lens, it is not a triplet.

    I've got a componon-S (150mm) for 4x5 and I couldn't be happier with it. Very sharp.

    My mistake the Componar's and Componar-C's were triplet design but the Componar-S is 4 element, but in recent years the Componar's have been Schneiders budget enlarger lenses. Triplet lenses were re-introduced in the 80's as budget enlarger lenses, Componar-C's. at some stage in the late 90's the Componar-S replace them and the Comparon's.
