    Leitz Focomat V35 35mm Autofocus Darkroom Enlarger For Sale UK

    With regret I need to sell my beautiful Leitz Focomat Autofocus V35 enlarger to make room for new business equipment. I don't do much 35mm work these days, so I would like this to find a good home.

    I purchased this from a collector several years ago who had cared for it very well. I used it for printing weddings and it was a joy to use. I had wanted one of these enlargers all my life, but at a cost of thousands I couldn't afford it in my younger days.

    I checked the Focotar 2.8 40mm lens and it is still immaculate as is the negative carrier which had a lens cloth sandwiched in between the glass carrier to prevent damage.

    The autofocus works a treat, however it might be worth checking the alignment when you raise the column. It's been a few years since I used it last.

    A fully working enlarger in fantastic dust free condition. Stored in a cool working environment free from damp.

    I also might have a few spare bulbs lying around for the buyer.

    Collection only please from Cambridge UK. I'd rather not post a sensitive piece of equipment.

    Easy access from M11 or A14 roads.

    Cash on collection or bank transfer on arrival.

    £475 or nearest offer. No dealers please.

    A good deal on a phenomenal enlarger...I use this one in the art gallery I have a darkroom in, and it's a joy to see the prints from it.

    Willing to accept any reasonable offer now, I need this out of the way.

    I'd rather donate some money to APUG rather than give ebay the fee, so drop me a pm if you'd like to come and view the enlarger.

    Located in Cambridge, UK. CB4 postcode.

    Cheers.
