The Coastal optics lenses cost >$5K each, while the Nikon EL 80/5.6 was $40. The UV Nikkor is about $10K, if you can find it anywhere. I have not seen any comparison on the optical performance at >>1:1 of the Coastal Optics or the UV Nikkor lenses to enlarger lenses. Given the rather experimental nature of my project, I am not quite ready to drop 5-10K on it.danski0224 said:Have you considered trying the Coastal Optics UV IR VIS macro lens?
