for Euro 60. I do not know whether I have paid too much for this lens. Right now, I have one unknown lens named Steinheil cassar with no aperture marking rather have numbers like 2,4,8...

Is Euro 60 too much for it?

A great lens for 6x6 (and 35mm). It's worth that if it's in good shape. I suppose some will say they got it for less. Others probably bought it new for many times that.

I recently bought a used Rodagon 80/5.6 for 28€, including shipping. The Rodagons are of the same class Componon-S are.

The glass is perfect and the only "fault" is that it had dust outside.

Most of the used photo equipment I've bought are in great condition and only need some cleaning to look better. There is some risk buying used lenses and cameras, but most times all these are undervalued and you can get great pieces in reall affordable prices.

To answer your question, it seems that 60€ may be about right for what you got. Of course, you could get it cheaper. My opinion is that next time you should wait for a better price. You can always get something really cheap.

Don't fret over it. I have the 80mm F4 and it's great. I expect the 5.6 is the same. €60 is a huge saving on the cost of Componon-S new. Maybe you could find one a little cheaper, but if it is in good condition, it's a good price.

It's a lens that is good enough for 16X enlargements, which is pretty large for medium format application.

Enjoy the lens and make lots of prints!

Componon-S lenses are my favorite lenses for enlargements, have used them almost exclusively for 5 years now (practically the blink of an eye compared to some other members here, but still enough time to form a valid opinion on them I would think), on both a Chromega DII 4x5, a Beseler 45M, and a Saunders 4550XLG. In fact, the only other enlarging lenses I use are a 105mm Nikon EL for my 6x7 and 6x9 negs, and the Focotar 40/2.8 on my V35. I have both the 50/2.8, 80/4, and 80/5.6, with the 80/4 being the most frequently used for both 35mm and 6x6 negs. Great lenses.
