    Quick question: when buying a second hand enlarger do you expect a lens with it ?

    Title says it all really...

    I'm selling an enlarger - I can't mail the enlarger (too big = hassle), but I could mail the lens and therefore list it here at APUG to a much larger market. But I don't want to shoot myself in the foot with an enlarger without a lens that I cant sell

    Have a look:

    whats it worth ?

    In that case you might want to sell the lens separate since that enlarger can't do 6x9cm. Rodagon 105mm lenses are not so common.

    Enlargers don't really sell, as there is little demand, so if you sell it with or without a lens you will still strugle to get a 'decent' price.

    On the other hand, enlarging lenses are useable for other purposes so appeal to a greater market as they're good for macro, product shots, and other photographic purposes, not just in an enlarger. You are probably better off selling the lens seperately.
