    And, just for the pure devilry, there has never been ANY evidence that diffusion enlargers are not as 'sharp'
    as condenser enlargers. All we are doing, really, is photographing a flat subject that is trans-illuminated.
    Contrast may vary, but that isn't really a factor for we accommodate that in our negs.

    OK, get out the pitchforks and torches.

    and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision"

    so the packaging could be for either a DIF1 or a DIF2 assuming one or other is in the enlarger and one is in the packaging?

    Time for testing as I don't think anything will be proved buy talking about it.

    No, this is a new unit in it's original package.

    Thats curious as they call the replacement DIF1 so the standard one is DIF2 unless there are others. Anyhow it makes no difference. A test is required to verify if there is difference and which one if either is better.

    I'll maybe call Terry at Northern Photo on Monday and see if he can shed any further light on it

    Well I dug the manual and always the old adage RTFM applies.
    It says the additional diffuser is for faster printing times but it also says that one of them gives better colour balance. It doesn't say which one.

    Now youíve gone and spoilt it, havenít you. Reading the manual is always a matter of last resort, we hadnít got to that stage yet.

    Anyway thanks for clearing the matter up.
    Regards Dave.
