Konica GRII for enlarging

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Does anyone know if the Konica Hexanon GRII series lenses are a wide field gauss design?

I'm looking for an enlarging lens to cover a 20"+ panoramic neg. and a 300mm 90 degree lens will do it if I can find one.

Currently I use a 210 Repromaster to enlarge 14" panoramic negs, it's an 8 element wide field gauss and does the job very nicely, sharp right into the corners. I have to use a wide angle enlarging lens because I'm using a vertical enlarger and have limited head room.

Clayton, FWIW, take a look at my recent thread 270mm f.11 G-Claron WA. It might be of interest!
