    I have a like new, latest multi-coated 150mm El-Nikkor 5.6 A w/cap & orig. box & bubble. It has a VERY slight dent in the rim, which affects nothing. $70 + $8 ship.

    If barrel cosmetics aren’t a concern I have a Schneider Componon-S 150/5.6 going cheap. Glass is wonderful. $50 shipped.

    I have a Rodenstock Apo-Ronar 150/9 process lens which I bought new back in about 1983, complete with protective cover glass, and is still in mint condition. I have never used it in my enlargers but only on a camera for shooting. Very impressive performance, about the best I have seen from any lens. Pretty sure it's a 4-element lens, air-spaced, perfectly symmetrical and optimised for 1:1 repro. I have heard people say that it makes a good enlarging lens for 4x5". Of interest to you?

    What’s the bias against Schneideritis? It affects nothing
