so far so good with (a combination of) new condenser lenses, and a bit of rotating... i havent tested anything above using a 50mm on 8x10 with 35 negs... no specks or scratches in the shadows, afraid to test with a grey print though! printing with a 2.8 rokkor lens, usually find myself printing at 8 and mostly 11, subconsciously over-correcting for misalignment issues that I'm not even sure are there!

would love to get an aristo or zone iv, but saving for a proper medium format kit before that happens...
