Does anybody know where I could find a nice 4x5 Durst, Devere or Omega Enlarger?

    I just started thinking about printing my 4x5 negatives again.
    My wife was looking at some of my black and white prints (a few are more than 35 years old), and she said: "I just love your Black & White photographs".
    We both agreed, there is truly something magical about the entire print making process!

    I still like black and white better than any of my digital work.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    It would be beneficial if you would indicate where in this big world you are located.

    I see a few 4X5 on my local Cragis list, always on E bay or Goodwill, but be willing to pay for shipping, 4X5 are heavy.

    Do you have a 4X5 enlarger and a good lens for it? I can help with the lens, I have a El Nikkor 150mm for sale. You can email me at lighwisps@yahoo.com if interested. Working in a darkroom is about as good as it gets. Don

    Hi lighwisps,

    What condition is this lens in?

    I used to use Rodenstock Rodagons when I was in the Army.
    How does the Nikkor compare?

    I tried to email you but it was rejected.

    Thanks,
    Mike
