Hey, all -
I've got an Omega Prolab 4x5 enlarger (70" column) that I've not used yet. It's been waiting for a lens so I can start printing the 4x5 negs I've been amassing.
I did some googling and have searched APUG, and from what I've seen, people are successfully using a Componon 135mm lens with good coverage for 4x5. I've just tried that lens (both an older model and a new one) and I still have a definite lack of coverage. I'm not sure why the 135 works for others and not for me.
I know that the natural lens for enlarging 4x5 is a 150mm. I just want to be sure that the 150 will resolve the problem before attempting to find and pay for one.
My apologies if this is an ignorant question, or if I haven't included sufficient information. I've done plenty of printing in my time, but I've only ever used one enlarger, so I'm a bit novice where darkroom equipment is concerned. I've had the 4x5 enlarger for a few years now, and have never fired up the beast.
Thanks in advance!
