    Need Help Identifying this Omega Condenser Lens

    I believe the attached picture is of an Omega condenser lens. Can someone confirm this fro me and tell me which head it fits and any other information that may be pertinent?

    Thanks a boatload.

    It's certainly not for a DII

    Could it be the variable condenser for the D2V?
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    It looks a lot like the supplementary lens for the D5 variable condenser head. Used with lenses shorter than 135-150mm IIFC. It fits in the head behind the flip-up door.

    The unit is slid in along one of the (different height) sets of guide bars (like drawer slides) with the lens hanging down. Position above the main, unmovable lenses, depends on the focal length of the enlarging lenses.

    It looks like one from a D5 that I used to have.

    Yup, also other variants with the variable cond. head. This is inserted at one of three postions to accomodate different focal lengths. It is shown flipped in the pic from the orientation in which it is inserted in the enlarger. Omega p/n 472105 msrp = 132.08$.

    Yep. OK now the next question is where does this one go? It is larger than the one posted earlier and is too large for the variable condenser head.


    Could it be for a cold head?

    As noted by others, the first lens looks just like the variable condenser in my D2V, used convex down above the two main condenser lenses, which are positioned with the convex sides facing each other, and separated by a corrugated aluminum sleeve. The second lens(es?) are much shallower than the ones in my D2V, however.
