got it. another question, ive used a devere 504 with color head and the contrast control is much more precise, by that i mean you have way more control than half grades like with ilford filters. does a MG head produce superior prints if both used well or when it comes down to it, is it really just which one you as a printer are used to?

to the OP, the devere 504 i used was the best built enlarger ive ever used, that and the focomat 1c and v35 ive used are my favorite. you will not be dissapointed with the devere, its def. a professional workhorse and very easy to use.
