Even though I am a happy Voigtlander Avus owner, I'd have to say if I was starting over, I would consider the Zeiss Ideal 250/7 (9x12) just for the drop bed feature. The Voigtlander Bergheil is a great investment as the lens alone is worth good money and people will pay for the reputation.
The film sheaths I have let the film rest on the guides in the holders, and the folded-over edges stays free, so there's no offset. Film sheaths were probably manufactured to fit certain holders.
