I have three 4x5 enlargers and two 6x7 but am still planning to buy the "ultimate" for "me" and 6x9 Kaiser and all the accessories. I like condenser enlagers and at $800 new the Kaiser is a very good deal and I like that they are so modular with such excellent parts costs.
You may wonder why with all these enlargers I want a new one. ( I have two Omega D2's an Omega 5Dxl with an Illford 500H head, an LPL 6700 dicro and an LPL 6700 variable contrast). Well it is for the future. I really like the simplicity of the D2 enlarger and I have a lot of accesories for it but to buy a few more would cost me an insane amount. To buy the Kaiser, where I know that it is as good quality wise as my LPL's and all the accesories that need to be included is cheaper than buying the extras I need for the other brands. I don't know why but Kaisers accesories are the most reasonable by a wide margin to any other - and the parts are NEW. I'm getting tired of hunting down parts at exhorbitant rates. I also don't like the crude nature of most of my enlargers. The Kaiser is like the LPL enlargers in that is is a smooth and well thought out piece of machinery. Smooth focus, cheap parts .... and NEW ... make the Kaiser and "no brainer" for me.
