Many thanks for the help, I'm clarified
You've said it well Matt, the best thing is to try it out.
And yes, I'm really happy to stumble across apug... I'm a newbie and starting to learn how to print on my own and this site seems to be a great resource to learn and keep the film alive. BTW you would be the first to recommend me "The Print" by Ansel Adams, right?
APO is expensive for me (and looks like it doesn't justify for my need: b&w and prints bellow 16 x 20), although I'll take that in mind if I need to change lens in the future
