favorite large format enlarging lens

Has anyone a favourite large format enlarging lens (210-300 mm). There is incredibly little info available in this size range (understandably, I guess). Cheers, Ed.

Response to large format enlarging lens

I have a 300 mm Schneider Componon S for my 8 x 10 and it is marvelous. Razor sharp and of the highest quality. Got it as a used lens for less than half of the new price and it looked identical to a new lens.

Be very carefull about your enlargers bellows capability as it relates to enlargement size.
