    enlarging lens for 6x9

    Hi Everybody,
    I'm new to the forum, also new to 6x9. I've been looking for the right enlarging lens. I love the Schneider 150mm Apo-Componon for 4x5 work. Anybody know if the 90mm f4.5 Apo-Componon will cover 6x9? Thanks!

    The standard line-up is:
    6x6 - 80mm
    6x7 - 90mm
    6x9 - 105mm
    I believe.

    However you could be lucky, I am using a 80mm Rodenstock Rodagon for 6x7.

    I think the 90 would cover it but the 105 would give better coverage. You can Google the lens mfg. for a chart that specs out their lens. I don't remember the link but its out there somewhere in Googleland.

    If you have the height or small prints the 150mm is fine.
