Me? I love my V8. When you are under the hood, all the controls are in the logical correct spots (for me). About 1800 dollars a few years ago with two lens (12 inch Ektar and 190mm Ektar) in shutters, one required calibration, three backs (4x5,5x7,8x10), all the original half spacers for weird formats, and a solid case. It is a somewhat heavy beast especially when you throw the tripod (Bogen with a Gitzo 3 head) into the equation.
