Subject: Re: [Leica] RE: Enlarging lenses/ a flat field is better for macro

<< I believe that the using the Rodenstock APO enlarging lens Christoph 
 has will give him superior results than almost any lens he could 
 choose.  High quality APO enlarging lenses will run circles around any 
 normal lens and most macro lenses when used for close-ups.  I can not 
 answer whether this combination is as good or better than the 100 F/2.8 
 APO R for macro work.  Someone else who owns suitable equipment for 
 testing will have to answer that.  I can say with no hesitation that he 
 won't be disappointed by the results. >>

I have used a Rodestock 135mm Rodagon on a bellows for macro for many years.
The results are of very high quality.  The lens also produces beautiful images
at longer distances as well.
