Yes, the prints are still of excellent quality. I am not sure if I am being too anal, but I would prefer to get the best out of enlarging without any loss of Dmax due to stray light leaks. I can imagine that many don't notice or prefer to mask it out. So did I until this puzzling problem to figure out the stray lights took over me.
