Agfa repromaster 80mm F 4.5. It looks like it has locking rings for fitting to a large format view camera, Those locking rings appear to be bolted together as opposed to being epoxied together. I thought long and hard before posting here( I sill might buy it if it isn't sold in a couple of weeks). Still not sure what the mount size is( I suspect it may be M34mm). If you look at getting it; check with the seller as to whether the rings can be removed(If they can it will seem a silly question to the seller but better that than finding you have a nasty problem)

The one I got has M34 mount. I see Raf has several M34 adapter so M34 must be a common standard.

a 50 mm F2.2!!

You may need to satisfy yourself that I have correctly identified the mount. I believe this lens is the Xenon Emerald( for Full frame sensor) If I am correct it has a Nikon F mount( which can be unscrewed, thread is most likely 40.5mm.... I don't know the pitch). I have one on the way already( I really liked the price) my plan is to use it reversed( has a 43mm filter thread). As long as it is indeed an F mount, its the full frame version, the other, non emerald, versions are designed for sensors smaller than MFT. I don't know about color correction but distortion is very low for all the xenon series. Lens is rated for 29mp ( I assume line scan)

Edit: they are now all sold out. They normally sell for around 600.00 (new)

Here's a Tominon 75mm at an El-Cheap price. Two reminders:

1) The Tominons are not enlarging lenses, but true Macro lenses that came with the Polaroid MP3/MP4 Macro systems
2) They require a special M40 adapter to mount. Usually this is available as M40-M42.

Not a lens but its the cheapest USAF resolution target I have seen in a long time. Not sure what group it gets to. If interested you would have to check that it goes to Group 7 element 6 otherwise its probably a waste of money

Thanks for the tip AK. I picked up this target and it is pretty cool. Been wanting one for a while, but didn't want to spend the high $.

It does indeed go to Group7 Element6 resolution. Wow, that is small. I imaged the target directly using a 10x objective, and had to go down to <2um step sizes to get it in proper focus. I found that even the slightest tilt caused problems so ended up doing a 8-stack just to get a good shot of the Group6 and Group7 elements, see result below:

There is a UK company that makes replacement bellows... but its not cheap around GBP80.00 plus postage. I had a replacement bellows made by them for a Mamiya 645 bellows..... I was really impressed with the results.
