    Anyone seen enlarging lenses like these?

    These lenses came along with a box full of darkroom accessories. I'm not quite sure on what enlarger they fit. I've never seen enlarging lenses mounted as these. There are 3 Rodagon's (50,80,105) and a Componon 60mm. I'm not even sure they all fit on the same enlarger. The 3 Rodagons have a different mount than the componon. Any ideas would be appreciated....

    They look like Omega mounts - I think they would fit on my DII.

    Thanks Steve. I was wondering if the mounts would identify them in any way. Louie, that makes sense because I did find some other Omega accessories in the same box. I'll list the stuff I'm not using in the classifieds for anyone who may be interested.

    They don't look like the typical Omega D mounts I've seen, but it's possible that they are all designed to mount to the flat (35mm) Omega lens mount. If so, the longer focal length lenses should be on the taller mounts.

    The 105mm is mounted on the smallest mount??? It looks like they may not be for an Omega. The lenses are either mounted backward, or the mounts are acting to recess the lenses into some type of reproduction machine. To me, it looks more like the lenses are mounted backward. I also note that the lenses have a "P" designation next to the name. The aperture on the lenses is also fixed with a small hex head bolt. There is also a little dash printed on the aperture scale between f/11 and f/16, just where the lens aperture is fixed. I assume it will be free to move if I remove the bolt. The closer I look the greater the mystery becomes....

    Durst mounts, perhaps?

    I'd guess they are from some sort of machine printer(s) that one might have found in a commercial lab.

    The give away is the locked aperture. They are from an automatic printer in a commercial lab. Remove them from these mounts by unscrewing the retaining ring and you can use them on any enlarger.

    Agree with Jim these are turret mounted lenses the spacer tubes are for focusing. The lenes will come out of the mounts, locking screws are easy to loosen and can also be removed.

    I was given two turrets full of Componons about 5 years ago for free, I gave many away here on APUG
