    These are the lower end lenses from each manufacturer... I would lean towards the meopta Meogon 80mm f2.8 lens. They are quite hard to find but will blow anyting out of the water.. Even the componon S.. Which is the higher end schneider. Again, the componon S is a good lens, and would really be better suited to the size of prints you are creating.

    The Anaret is a much better lens, the Componar-C is a Triplet (3 elements).

    Yes the right solution. Get the Anaret. BTW the Anaratet S is infact made by Schneier and in a Meoptabarrel.

    I have used an 80mm Anaret in the past, and was very pleased with the performance.

    My anaret 80(not S) is inferior to 6-element nikkors, componons and rodagons. I do not have componar 75mm, but old chrome componar 50mm 3,5 is an excellent
    lens, especially for small enlargements up to13x18cm.Maybe a little lower contrast, but great reproductions of tones and the sharpness comparable with all the best
    6-element lenses.
