I'll put in another vote for a Canham. I have Canham 5x7/5x12 and 14x17 bodies if you'd like to handle one (or several) to get a feel for the idiosyncrasies of the brand, and I live in DC. Plus, Canham is American made, and he offers superlative customer support. I bought my 5x7 used. Part of the back developed a flaw in the wood - Keith drop-shipped me a replacement back at no charge, and just asked that I return the old one to him at my convenience. You can't ask for better than that - warranty service on a second-(third, fourth, fifth?)hand camera.
