posted this in the black and white printing forum and got only one response (thanks lee). looking for more input, so i turn to the most vibrant forum on photo.net. any input would be welcome. "I have a besseler 23c-II and am considering obtaining a leitz focomat IIa enlarger for b&w printing. i currently use vc paper, and although i could go for graded paper, i would be interested to know if there is an easy and effective way to use contrast filters with the leitz enlarger. also, if anyone has any experience with both enlargers, i would appreciate an opinion as to whether the leitz is really so much better than the one i have that i will be happy to have acquired it. (i print to 11 x 14, and have a rodenstock roganar (sp?) 50mm and nikkor 1.4 75mm lenses for the 23c.)"
