I thought about it, but if you use one, it is so hard to get my fat fingers
in there to change the aperture! I got the VALOO so I could use the Elmar on
my Valoy enlarger, and the little aperture ring was so convenient, that I
leave it on all the time!! It comes off, true, but then you have to align
the notch for the aperture control.... Nothings perfect! I guess I will just
'deal with it', as my kids say!
