Hey, Wolfie, welcome to the forums!

I thought that the EL-Nikkor series of lenses were enlarging lenses for the darkroom (I sold my older one a few months ago), I don't see why you'd want one for a digital body, plus it wouldn't mount anyways.

Hello,

Unless you plan to do any work with film sometime soon I'd sell it. If you think about it, enlarging lenses kind of work the opposite of the way that you standard camera lens would. While camera lenses help form light onto a strip of film or a digital sensor, enlarging lenses project it off of the film. Back in the good ol' days of film, when you needed to make a print of your negative what you did was you shined a light through the strip of film, and the light then shined through the enlarging lens and onto a sheet of photo paper to form an image.

Not only that, if you could get it to mount, it's only optimised for the close distances you find on an enlarger.

I believe that if you can get one mounted it's good for macro, but everything will be manual, and the lens doesn't have a focusing mound, so you would need to rig something up there too.

Of interest, the screw thread is the same as for the Leica screw thread camera lenses. In times past, people would unscrew the camera lens and use it in their enlarger.
