Hmmm... Others answered your questions, so I'll *ask* a couple to
start some conversation that might be educational!

What film size are you planning on doing? The 50mm lense is for
35mm negative. The 75mm lense is for larger negatives, and will
only make small prints when used for a 35mm negative.

But the real question is just exactly what are your two lenses?
(The original lense supplied by Besler was, ahem... *horrible*.)

The good news is that really top quality enlarging lenses are
selling used today for peanuts. Hence if you have a poor lense
or for that matter even a half decent one, it is easy to pick up
a very good one.
