Paul - My  darkroom  became a storage  room!
still have the monster 5x7 durst enlarger w/ vacuum easel that I had  since 
the 70s. what a beast!  then I have small  2x3 omega  to  pull  strips of 
negatives though to print.
yea  the digital stuff was a game changer indeed...
I  do not know  about the contax rts lenses fitting new   bodys.. they were 
nice lenses, It would be  good to use them!

other  enlargers, print washers and dyers, etc that I don't need.
