    I just bought a durst c35 enlarger, The lens is a 50mm Durst neotaron, and i was wondering what you all thought about it, is it any good, or was it a tragic waste of money?

    thanks for the help

    Durst is a main brand name in enlargers; I'm sure it will work fine. The "neotaron" sounds a little suspicious. ;) Look for a 50mm Schneider Componon, El Nikkor, Fuji, or Rodenstock. They are almost giving them away if used.

    The Neotaron was the Durst 'cheapie'. If you want to get the most out of the enlarger and your negs get a quality lens get one of the ones named by KSMattfish or a Minolta. I own a Durst with EL Nikkors.

    Schneider also made lenses for Durst - the manufacturer should be marked on it somewhere.

    I definatly need a new lens, i have been using it for a month or so now, and when i look through it, it is filthy, there is no way to clean it, but i am just playing around still so i guess i can wait to buy a new sweet lens
