I eventually got myself a (Nikkor? it's packed) 75mm for 6x6 negs, but I'm still using lab 6x6 cards (as in carboard cards) hinged together with masking tape as an insert in my 4x5 carrier for 6x6 negs. I did manage to find a nice 35mm negatrans that I use for most of my 35mm stuff, though.
That's a fantastic price on the 8x10 conversion kit. Not that I'd ever use it for 8x10 negs, but I've found it next to impossible to find someone in the area who makes enlarged analog contact sheets, and I'd sure love to do it myself. The local labs seem to think a photoshop-generated (or, I guess, miniprinter-generated) digital index prints amount to the same thing. Heathens.
Is that $300 price a one-fer or have you found a super-duper vendor who can sell more than one at that price? Also, for my own future curiosity, are those kits strictly 8x10 or something between 8x10 and 10x10?
