Remember the JSK Componon or Componon-S ? And, if we speak of the
80 mm Componons - there was/ is hardly any other enlarger lens, which 
could show all the middle tones from an SWC FP4 negative.

Besides, what happened to the old rule, that the focal length of
the enlarger lens should correspond to the "standard" lens in 
negative formats ? Cancelled ?
