    I have quit shooting 8x10, and am disposing of my Durst 184.
    Does anyone have an opinion about the use of a Zone VI enlarger for printing 120 and 35mm?
    I have a nice beseler setup, and might just farm out the small amount of 5x7 work I do, but a Zone VI would print 5x7 all the way to 35mm.
    So is the ZoneVI easy to use printing the smaller formats?.
    I have a ten foot ceiling, so clearance is not a problem.

    I find it nicer to print on an enlarger bigger than the format I'm printing. I'd just keep the Durst for everything. I actually just got an extra Hotub for the 184 that I may sell if you are interested.
