I agree with matt. Assuming you have the funds, get both. I love beseler enlargers, even though mine at home is an omega. If I had to pick just one, shoot for the D-2. It will even enlarge 4x5 and the whole D series is just great. However, and this is how I got my enlarger, is that you should make aquaintences and friends of local APUGers or old style photographers. They are great people to know and they happen to tend to be super generous with their old stuff, so if you have patience you could end up with an enlarger and tons of super cool accesories for almost nothing, just a little dusting. Photographers rock!
