    Don't the Horseman cameras use the same lensboard as well? I think they do (I could be wrong).

    I have an F2, and it is still heavy when you carry just 2 lenses and a handful of film holders, but the camera is so terrific that I just kept it. I ended up buying a Tachihara, but you could easily go with any of the light wood field cameras (Shen Hao, Chamonix, etc.) and remount the lenses (easy enough to do). Or you could get an adapter board.

    I was wondering, how relevant are these "field cameras" in the field? If the shooting speed can be as fast as a medium format camera then it might be worth it.
