Are they the same company? We're looking at the 4550LPL XLG and they both make them!
No. Tiffen aka Suanders used to import the LPL enlargers and easels. Omega used to make Omega enlargers. It looks like Omega is now importing the easels and enlargers.
Same enlarger. Go with it. It is the best.
LPL is a Japanese company. Neither Saunders nor Omega ever made them, they were/are just importers.
Sorry. I didn't read the follow up posts that answered the question.
