I wouldn't hazard a guess on the third one other than to say that I would give it a try with the 50mm that was with the enlarger. I will check my "treasure chest" tomorrow and see if I still have some negative carriers... I seem to recall a 35mm and a 4x5... as previously noted, many of us hoarded negative carriers and I can't even recall how many different enlargers I went through over the course of sixty years.

    I used a D-3 autofocus for several years. I only had a 150mm and a 50mm focusing track. I was able to us an 80mm lens for 120 printing by using a bellows focusing cone and the 50mm track. I gave this enlarger away years ago when I bought my ZoneVI that I use today. I recently rescued a D-2 that belonged to a friend as his widow wanted it out of the house. Unfortunely it had been stored in the attic for a long time and needs work and carriers.

    Hi Ron, Did you use the Autofocus feature or just use it manually? Thanks!

    I did use the autofocus but found that the focus did shift when moving the enlarger up and down. However fine focusing with a grain magnifier was quick because the negative stayed close in focus.
