    I have an Omega D2V (4x5) enlarger and several lenses and fulm holders that I have not used in 15 years. Is there a market for it?

    Every couple of weeks I search Ebay to try to find one close enough to pick up easily. I'd shoot more 4x5 if could print it.

    Yes I think so. If at the last minute I hadn't found a D3 locally (New Zealand), would have bought one from the US.

    There was a post here just yesterday by a guy in south-central Pennsytlvania who was looking for a 4x5 enlarger. So yes, there is a market.

    absolutely.

    As a complete kit an Omega D2 holds it's value better than almost any other enlarger on the market (this based on at least 45 minutes of exhaustive research by yours truly :wink:

    The trick is... finding a buyer. In the last few months I've seen good clean kits sell for $300 plus (or more depending on lenses) and at times it can be hard to get much more than a buck a pound for them..

    Cheers,
