I can't see how lenses have any bearing on the output of a print in this scenario.

Printing at larger sizes, or at finer line screens if offset litho, is to do with image resolution (or megapixels if you prefer).

At larger sizes, you need more pixels per inch to provide more detail, to avoid pixelation or producing a 'soft' image. The big question is what resolution (ppi at printed size) does your printer recommend? Mine suggests 360dpi, but I can get away with 240dpi and even lower sometimes.

That said, if your clients are happy (and at A2 they are probably viewing the image at a further distance than an A4) then no worries.
