The lens type Rodagon, with brilliant reproduction over the whole scale range of conventional enlargers, has become the universal workhorse of both demanding amateurs and professionals in practical use.
The 6 element design guarantees the resolution of the finest details while maintaining a uniformly high contrast from the picture center to the edges. As the lens is nearly independent with regard to scale, top quality is ensured from mini-prints right up to high enlargements.
All Rodagon lenses are equipped with click-stop diaphragms which can be disabled for focal lengths from 28 mm to 135 mm and all lenses are provided with a pre-set aperture.
The excellent imaging quality of the Rodagon enlarging lenses is also utilized for close-up and macro shots. Here sharper results can be obtained than with macro lenses. As a focussing aid for shots with 35 mm, video or film cameras, Rodenstock offers the "Modular-Focus" with 25 mm of extension and straight-line movement.

I'm firing up my darkroom after many years of neglect. A new lens for my 6X6 negatives is needed and Rodenstock Rodagons remain my preferred darkroom glass. Images snap into focus beautifully, and sharpness is always flawless, edge-to-edge. The f-stop detents click perfectly and never seem to wear out. You might pay more for a Schneider Componon, but I doubt anyone but a lab geek could detect any difference in image quality. A Rodagon is always money well-spent.
