    Dialyt or Tessar as an enlarging lens?

    I'm planning to build a simple and cheap 9x12 enlarger using an old plate camera and a lightbox. Which lens would you recommend of a 4,5/13,5 Eurynar, Unofokal or Tessar?

    Not the Unofokar The Tessar might have slightly better contrast but the Eurynar could be sharper so try it first.

    The Unofokal isn't a bad lens. I wrote before about my Tessar in a Compur that I "killed". I hope it's usable as an enlarging lens. Now I have a project this fall and vinter.
