    From what I can tell the Saunders 670 VCCE Enlarger is still manufactured but under the name of Omega LPL 670VCCE? If this is true I would be crazy to purchase a new one at $1300 (B&H) when I can get a used working one for cheap. Can someone enlighten me?

    I looked for one for about 8 months until I found one for about $350. They are pretty nice and pretty rare. I don't think it would be crazy at all to buy one new. You'd have it soon and it would be new. I had an Omega D2 so I was in no hurry. One option I'd recommend, though, is the glass carrier. Really nice.
