I am in the process of shopping around for an enlarger to do my 5x7 work with. I 've come across a used (advertised as in excellent condition)Durst 138S with all the necessary condensers, no lens board and no lens, but a three lens turret. I am also considering a new Zone VI with a VC head, which I suspect may end up c osting a bit more than the used Durst, or close to the same once I pay a huge am ount of money for shipping the Durst.
Does anyone have any opinions on which would be the wiser choice, the used Durst 138S or a new Zone VI? Are there any other options for 5X7 that I'm missing as I am new to large format? Thanks to everyone for your help and input!!!!
