    From my limited knowledge this is a 35mm enlarger so if you wish to move to medium format then it will not serve you as well. Good lens, and it will be fine to start off with, LPL made good enlargers, you will be able to go to 10 x 8 at least. No doubt another will be able to post more/corrected info, enjoy and regards

    actually i'm shooting mostly on 35mm,and to find an enlarger at my country is quite hard,so i'ii try to grab this chance,thanks for the comment...
    i hope more ppl can post their comments,especially about the Rodenstock rodagon 50mm f/2.8 lens,is there any issue regarding this lens,as i'm almost zero knowledge about the enlarger.

    The Rodenstock rodagon 50mm f/2.8 lens is a high quality lens.
    As long as it is in good condition (clean, undamaged), it should serve you well.
    It can also be used with other, larger enlargers, if you ever obtain one.
    This particular enlarger is most convenient for small enlargements (up to 9x13.5) but it can be used for larger prints.

    Have fun with it!
