Last week i bought a 4x5 inch enlarger for 25 euro from Fujimoto. It is a 450M-D. I have ordered new glasses (1 normal and 1 AN glas) for the negative holder from Focal Point inc. via internet. I have made lens plates myself made from 1 mm black anodized aluminium plate.
All in all it is a perfect working 4x5 enlarger build like a tank. And it is very easy do take apart so i can put it away when not in use.
As an enlarger lens i would like to use a schneider kreuznach G-glaron 150 mm/9 lens that i happen to have around and that happens to have an diaframe ring so i can stop it down to 45 or so.
Is this lens usable for enlarging 4x5 (it coveres 4x5 i have read the specs) and than i mean does it give a good quality. I think i an going to be making 30x40 cm enlargements at most.
Like to hear from you,
