    I was given some enlarger lenses that I don't have any use for since I
    don't have my own darkroom. They're all in excellent shape (optics
    completely clear and no cosmetic damage). Can anyone suggest what sort
    of prices I should ask for (USD)?

    Nikon El-Nikkor 135mm 1:5.6
    Nikon El-Nikkor 75mm 1:4
    Rodenstock Omegaron 50mm 1:3.5
    Schneider-Kreuznach Componar 75mm 1:4.5

  2. Exactly what someone is willing to pay for them. Check old
    eBay sales for some idea of what they go for there. Don't
    expect the same price from a local sale.
    Remember that condition is everything. Also remember that
    there is a glut of darkroom equipment on the market right
    When you get ready to sell post them in

    Everything except the 135 El-Nikkor are not top of the line lenses. IMHO they
    are worth about $10 or less each in mint condition. Why use them when top of
    the line used lenses are now so cheap. The 135 value would depend on condition
    and if it is a newer (all black) or older (chrome) version. Maybe around $50.
    If you're time and not money strapped may just be easier to give these away to
    some beginning darkroom worker.

    Look at Ebay for similar lenses.
