Richard Ritter is an amazing guy for service. He is the go-to guy for having things fixed and/or modified.

Canhams seem like good cameras. However, just make sure you understand that they are not a normal/traditional design. Their setup/breakdown is different to what you're used to.

As for lenses, the Nikkor is amazing. I have one for ULF stuff. I'd also look at the Nikkor 120mm as an ultra wide for 8x10. There's a massive amount of info on lenses both here and on LFPF.
