I own a couple Wista DXs. I like them very much. A small lens will fold up inside the camera, cutting down on the size of your kit a bit. I would not get the DXII without the rear shift. I find shift very useful. I use 90mm and 75mm lenses on recessed lensboards just fine and up to 300mm on a top-hat lensboard.

I also own a Woodman. Also a fine lightweight camera. It won't take the recessed Technika-style boards, but it handles the 90mm lens on a flat board just fine. It folds up without lenses.

I've heard good things about the Shen-Hao and the Chamonix cameras. If I were shopping for another field camera, I'd seriously look at the Chamonix.

Best,
