    Ok, I've just finalized plans to get a Beseler 45 MCRX, so I have no need for my absolutely gorgeous Leitz V35 anymore, as sad as that is to say.

    It's in 100% condition. VC module works great, new bulb (newer style), operation is smooth on everything including column elevator, autofocus, magnification arm, etc. Truly perfect. Oh, and I have the 35mm negative holder (full frame I think; can check with calipers)

    The baseboard has some fine "checking", so let's call it 98%. Honestly that is the only sign of wear.

    Focotar 40mm f/2.8 is clean and smooth functioning.

    This is a 35mm, black & white shooters perfect enlarger; you'll never need another. I have been using the VC module with Ilford MG papers and it coincides well with the Ilford filters as far as I can tell.

    I can & will upload pictures but I'm at work and just finalized plans, so just wanted to get it up ASAP.

    Feel free to ask me any questions, I check PM regularly and respond quickly.

    A perfect unit on eBay can sell for $400, so I'll just mention that and I'll leave it open to offers. There is a price that I won't let it go for less than, but don't hesitate to make an offer.

    Shipping will be expensive; probably at least $50 I would guess. I can remove the column and package it with the baseboard in a secure and well padded package. I will only charge you the real shipping cost; which we can figure out case by case. I'll need to package it and weigh it however.

    For $400 however, I'll ship it "for free".

    These enlargers are well built, well designed and solid.

    And like that, she's gone, at asking price.
