    Schneider Kreuznach Componon-S 240mm Lens for 8x10

    I just acquired this lens. I was surprised to see this lens is so big. It is bigger than some of the 35mm lenses.

    I just wonder for what enlargers this lens was made? I do not know if any enlargers can mount the 65mm lens directly. Or a special lens board would have to be made.

    Anyone has used this before? It is for 8x10 enlargers.

    It is much smaller than the 300mm version, which is typical for 8x10. I use them both on a DeVere 5108.

    I used one of these on a Zone VI Type II enlarger with the 8x10 VC head. It is a great lens and fit the lens adapter with no issue. As Davis stated, the 300mm is even larger.

    I would assume that it could be used with any enlarger as long as the lens board would fit. Mine is used on a Durst 138s for 5x7.

    What is the exact thread? Do you need to have the lens board made from machine shop?

    I'm showing 66 x 0.75. Didn't it come with a mounting flange?

    That is a little baby lens compared to the 360mm
    You can mount it at the waist or off the rear element depending on if you use a turret or not (see 2 pictures below). SK Grimes can mount it but it will be cheaper if you supply them with a lensboard for your enlarger. What enlarger will you be mounting it on?

    That 360mm lens is cool.

    I do not have the enlarger yet to mount on. The lens is new and it comes with the flange, but I just want to make sure if it is 65mm or 66mm. Will be searching for the 8x10 machine.

    I do not think I'll be using the 3-lens turret. It is going to be too heavy to mount 3 large lenses together.... Just IMOP.
