    For $500 I'd grab it - the easel alone is worth at least $200, not to mention the print washer.
    I envy you guys in the US - so much gear available for such great prices!

    Here is B&H's listing for the Enlarger value pack alone (at $789.95):

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc....html#features

    So if "brand new" matters to you, the entire package is a good deal.

    The enlarger is a good one - essentially the same as the enlarger I used for 30+ years, and still retain as a backup.

    The lens isn't anything to write home about, but higher quality used lenses are plentiful and cheap, and you can re-use the lensboard.

    Accessories for the enlarger are available new (expensive) and used from a number of sources.

    The rest of the package looks very functional.

    You could probably save money if you were patient and relied on the various sources for used equipment, but you would have to be patient.

    New is nice, when you can .

    Yes, those are included as well along with a bunch of Ilford paper... I'm really looking for a Leitz Focomat enlarger but I guess the Beseler 67 xlc will do in the interim... Any opinions on this Beseler model?

    Thanks,

    That's an amazing deal. Especially since it's new.

    GO for it. These enlargers are good, solid work-horses. At $ 500 you really can't go wrong. As for the Focomat - who do you think you are?.......Ralph Gibson????
