I'd be interested as well. I'll be in the market for an 8x10 (hopefully in a few months if the house sells!. Being in New Zealand there is not much to choose from. The main camera shop in Auckland only carries Sinar and ZoneVI. They have the Zone VI 8x10, and although I can pick up something cheap on ebay, I like the local support I would get buying a camera in town. Plus I worry about purchasing from ebay or another used source and being in New Zealand. I wouldn't be able to really view what I get, shipping regular from the US can take up to 6 weeks and ithe cost is astronomical, etc. I have heard ZoneVI cameras used to have issues but the new ones are a rock.
I'm also considering that I might just have to time a visit home to the U.S. with purchasing my 8x10 outfit. This way I could hit some of the major, used retailers and save a lot of money.
