Louis -

I have a V35 and an Omega D5XL.  I use the V35 much more than the Omega,
but then most of my darkroom work these days is in 35mm black and white.
The V35 is perfect for that.  I use the Omega for large format and color
but I'm using the computer more for color now so the Omega rarely gets
used.  I love the V35.  If I can answer any more questions, just ask!
