    Very common in the US, almost unheard of in Europe.

    What is your average printing time with this enlarger?
    I have the SIRIOTUB and SIRIOPLA lens "plates", and SIXMA 35 and 67 glassless negative carriers - and also the glass carrier of which I use the top glass. The exposing time for a 24x30cm paper is usually in the 10-30s range.

    I have both an Omega D-II (in perfect condition pretty much) which I use all the time, and a Durst Laborator 1000 (got for $25 local pickup at the last sec on auction cause no one else bid) which I have yet to use since I haven't picked it up yet. I adore the Omega to bits, but can't wait to get the Laborator up and running as well. I also have a Durst M606 which is quite a hot little vintage piece of work.

    I'm afraid your Omega DII is about done. The Durst Laborator is head and shoulders above the Omega. I had both (DII and L1200). There is no comparison.

    In this work from Richard Nicholson about London last darkrooms, you can see almost all the enlargers are devere or dursts (laborator).

    I never get tired of looking at those pictures.

    Also, if you check the parking lot outside those London darkrooms, not many Dodges, or Buicks

    jajajajaj, well here in Spain We cannot see many buicks but We see many Dodges (a small model).
    To see others darkrooms is something hypnotic.

    I saw this one yesterday in flickr, I think is one of the prettiest darkrooms I have ever seen:

    It was a surprise to see a leitz focomat IIc with a 500 system, is a good good idea; and you can put the condenser easily if yo want. At the other hand I don't know if you can use lenses other than focotars in this enlarger.
