Darn it Lee, ya had to go and spoil it for me! I figured that, if they didn't exist, the 2 I have would suddenly be worth a fortune.

just do the best of what you want to do using what you've got
sure, a 16x20 view camera making only contact prints is (???) the ultimate, but try doing candid street photography
so a 16x20 enlargement from 35mm is not pin sharp, who has good enough eye sight to notice from the appropriatte viewing distance
