that's true. still, I'm a big DURSTfan.on the other hand,6-element enlarging lenses are all good no matter what brand.Look for package deals.they give you the most fror the buck.you can profit from somebody's wish for a convenient sell.splitting it up takes effort and folks try to avoid that.you can turn that into your benefit, because package buyers are hard to get.
