I opted for a Durst L1200 with Multigraph head (computerised VC with exposure and grade analysis). I paid $1600 for it together with all mixing boxes for 35mm through to 5x4 and negatives carriers from 35mm to 5x4. Not the most intuative piece of kit available and if you use a large variety of papers you will need the settings data for each one. Up to 5 different papers can be programmed at any one time. The chassis is very well made with tensator spring height adjustment fine focus and a focussing extension arm. On reflection If you opted for a durst I would go for the colour headed version.
