    There is one available around here and the seller states it can print from 4x5 negs. (not that i dont believe them, i just cant find any info in the first 2 pages of a google search)

    The Durst Modular 70 Vario was designed for use with 6.5x9cm as the largest format to handle. It was not designed for use with 4x5. If the format of 6.5x9cm or smaller works for you then it would be a very nic enlarger to own.

    Correction

    Not that the original poster will still read this (old post), but just incase someone else is looking for information on this enlarger:
    The above is not correct. The modular 70's maximum size is 6X7cm (in reality 56x68mm). Doesn't matter wether it's a BW, Vario or Color model.
    Apart from this: Absolutely wonderfull enlarger, I'm a happy user of a vario model.
