My most used enlarger for the past 15 years has been a 4x5 DeJur Versatile Professional that came with a condenser head. I later acquired a florescent head for it, but use the condenser head. With an improvised 3.5 inch spacer between the negative carrier and the condenser, and a lens board recessed 1.75 inches, it also works fine for 35mm. The 135mm DeJur lens, apparently a Tessar formula, performs well. The DeJur does lack a filter drawer.
