    Tominon 135mm 4.5 lens

    I just got the above mentioned lens in a Polaroid MP4 shutter on a 4x4 Beseler board. Is it any good for enlarging 4x5 negs? It didn't cost me anything so if it's no good I won't be disappointed. Maybe it would be good on my Speed Graphic?
    Thanks for any advice.

    They were used for copying flat work so should work OK as an enlarging lens. Like anything else there are better & worse. It's probably gong to work better on the enlarger but won't hurt anything if you shoot with it either.
    It is corrected better for close work though.

    I will try it on the enlarger and camera and see what happens. Hopefully it will be usable for one or the other. Free stuff is always cool to get.
