    It looks good and complete. If it is working order you should be ready to roll.

    The add didn't specify sizes for negative holders or lenses so you might need to pick up specific accessories.

    I dont necessarily have a room for this, nay, I only have a dry room for this...but that should work still.

    From the looks of the holders, I think that's two 6x7's, 6x6 and a 35mm. I have a Schneider Componon-S 105mm that I'd use for my 6x7s

    For what your getting this is a great price. You should probably pick up a better enlarger lens at sometime but I wouldn't hesitate on this setup.

    I am in the same situation needing a presence in two locations. As my girlfriend has said about such things, "If you want it and you will enjoy it, just go ahead and buy it. We can work out the details later."

    Bought it. Now, who wants to buy some color stuff? Analyzers, jobo system, tanks, all that stuff. I will have zero use for it. I think I have shot a total of 4 rolls of color neg through my Mamiya.

    seriously good deal, nice score! The carriers and the grain finder are worth about $85 lol You should just give away that color stuff if your not going to use it, karma points man.
