[rollei_list] Re: get Durst and older Omega enlargers up to 4x5 for a song it seems odd

Hi Jan:
        It is not new, however it looks like new; I bought it for condition, 
size and good price; you are right, it just goes up to 6x6; I'm 35mm and 6x6 
photographer and then no problem; I really preferred a 6x9 enlarger, I have an 
old 6x9 camera and perhaps I'll buy a Mamiya 23 outfit soon, but I have the 
digital prints option, 6x9 negs are very good to scan with flatbed 
scanners.Kaiser is still manufacturing enlargers, the VP 6000 is discontinued, 
the current model is the VP 6005 System V B&W enlarger, it looks almost 
identical. 
'glad you are enjoying your vacation in spite of the "no photography" signs.
