Konota cropped my 35mm negatives (without my asking them to do so) pretty significantly while enlarging to 6R. Is this something to be expected when making 6R prints? I would have thought that something which prints without cropping on 4R should print without cropping on 6R.

FYI: 4R is 4" x 6" (2:3 ratio), and 6R is 6" x 8" (3:4 ratio)

that explains it - which size is exactly proportional to 4R then?

there is super 6R too which is 6 x 7.5 inches in dimension. just multiply the shorter side by 1.5 to get 3:2 ratio.

6 X 1.5 = 9. So, I guess Super 6R is not in the 35mm negative ratio, unless you made a typo.
