Enlarger Lenses

Optics deployed in enlarging devices for printmaking from 35mm, medium format, or large format negatives.

Most 40-50mm enlarger lenses cover 35mm ‘full-frame’ sensors, and allow tilt/shift movements on smaller cameras (Micro Four/Thirds, APS-C, etc). Lenses longer than 75mm typically project an image circle large enough to cover smaller medium-format sensors (and permit movements on 35mm sensors). Longer lenses have even larger image circles. See individual listings for details.
