Dear Diffuse Light Printers,

If you were to make a choice between an Ilford MG 500 or an Aristo VCL4500 heads, which one would you prefer? I'm interested in any major advantages/disadvatanges of either. Emotional preferences?

I do 4x5, mostly landscape. Due to circumstances, I will resume printing on VC papers (so far I used to use graded and an old cathomag head, now broken).

Enlarger is DeVere 504. I have a Zone VI timer with the light-probe gizmo.

Many thanks for your kind wisdom,
R.
