    It's all your fault ;-)

    It is always nice when a person with a compulsion finds his proper home.

    I'm glad someone else is worse off than me.

    Well my 2nd turret has arrived

    Now to get the additional lenses to populate it.
    I'm still trying for a Componon-S 100 or EL-Nikkor 105, but I keep getting outbid. Oh well, I have plenty of time to wait for that lens.

    One thing you might think about. I have my darkroom in a basement and the humidity can get pretty high. I had a set of Schneider lenses all get hazy and one got fungus. Now I keep my lenses in a Tuperware container with silica bags to keep them dry. Changing lenses is so completely easy and quick that using a turret to make it even easier is not worth anything to me. I would rather keep my lenses in the dry box unless I am using them. Having a turret with all my lenses on it would be tempting to just leave them all out all the time.

    Me too. I finally gave in and purchased a small room dehumidifier on wheels. What a difference. Set it to 50% and the room is now perpetually cool and dry. I used to hate to store stuff down there. Now it's overflowing because it's my favorite place. I have to turn it off when processing film so the film doesn't curl when drying.

    Dennis,
    I had always used single lens mounts in the past, and changing lenses wasn't a big deal. This is my first exposure to a turret.
    I like your idea of a tupperware with silica gel. thanks.

    Well I'm back to a single turret with 50+80+105, and a single lens board with a 135.
    I read the D5 manual and it turns out that the standard chassis D5 has a maximum baseboard magnification of 4x with a 150 and 4.8x with a 135. So I can get a larger magnification with the 135, and the ability to print 16x20 (if I want to). The 150 would barely make it to 16x20, with no room to crop, which I always seem to do.

    I am still considering a 2 turret setup later; 50(35mm)+80(6x6)+90(6x7) and 105(6x9)+135(4x5).
    But the 90mm lenses for 6x7 are not listed in the 6 element lenses. I have to drop down to the 4 element lenses to find a 90, but I won't be enlarging as much as 35mm so the 4 element lens probably would not have a visible difference to me over a 6 element lens.
