I also bought an older 23CII from eBay for next to nothing. I think it was $75 + $50 S/H (the previous owner didn't dismantle it). That price bought the enlarger with a condenser head, 35mm carrier, and El-Nikor 50mm f/2.8 lens. If you look at the older ones (the blue ones!), you'll find great deals!
