    I've been using a Zone VI for several years now and love it! In fact, I can honestly say there is nothing wrong with it -- a masterpiece of design. It has risen to every challenge I've ever given it and never failed to deliver.

    They can be found on eBay often, as well as elsewhere, for a grand or so with a lens. Personally, I find the 135mm to be the most useful, but a 150 is also good to have. While many consider the 210 to be "standard," I just don't find I use it that much. Still, to each his own.

    Zone VI is a beauty!

    Ebonys are great cameras. I used one for a few weeks and wrote a short review on my site. I'd love to get one with the assymetrical tilts. (I have them on my Sinar and love them.) Nonetheless, we're talking about a completely different price leaque, with a whole host of interesting alternatives (Walker, Arca, ....)

    I haven't used a Wista, but I did play with one in the store. I hope that I was looking at a bad sample. I broke the shift knob just by applying gentle pressure. That's not very encouraging.

    I am happy with my Toyo AX and use lenses from 90 - 300 mm. The newer model with more plastic is very inexpensive and a great place to start.

    I've used a Zone VI for over twenty years. No problems and it has the movements that I use.

    I have the 90 F8 Super Angulon...and the 120 5.6 Apo Symmar. Both suit my needs.

    IF you can ever find one, a Goerz WA Dagor 4 3/8" (110 mm) f8 is a fantastic little lens. Slim enough to stay on the camera when closed up on just about everything out there in a field camera. It will cover 5x7 with very limited movement, or 4x5 with generous movement. Weighs next to nothing. I got really lucky when I bought mine - I guess nobody was watching for one that day, as I paid $100 for it. Wider than that, I'm partial to the Rodenstock 90 and 75 f6.8 models. Just a little slower than the 5.6 versions, but very large image circles, still brighter than the f8 versions, and both take a 67mm filter, which is nice since that is the filter 3/4 of my 4x5 lenses use. The only two that don't take that size are my Sinaron 150 and my 4 3/8" WA Dagor. In the long run, you really can't go wrong with anything from the big four (Schneider, Rodenstock, Nikon, Fuji).
