Approximately 70mm and the same extension seems better…

An idea in the same sense:

Note that the above is for black and white, color is harder, due to the orange mask on these negatives.
The idea that some sites appears to have about this is:
1. Invert (result: bluish, low contrast image)
2. Use levels, curves, Contrast&Brightness and Hue & Saturation to adjust this up – a basic white balance operation seems to be the starting point (move the dark and light points individually for R, G and B layers in Levels up to the histogram ends).

2 – steps
2a. Remove any tint you got in photographing the negative (you need a white or gray area to achieve this). Use a Levels or Curves layer and the White/Grey/Black point pickers.
2b. Add another Levels or Curves layer, now do the same White/Grey/Black point picking, but on the frame around the photo. The frame should end up be black (it was never exposed!) in this and coming processing.
2c. Add a layer to adjust Contrast & Brightness
2d. Add a layer to adjust Hue & Saturation
2e. The last layer is for Exposure.
2f. Re-iterate the settings in the layers from the previous from step 2c. onwards a few times.
Now, this is how I have got fair results, but nothing that really makes me think this type of editing is worth the effort.
