Thanks for the reply. I think the sales rep must have been misinformed, but I wanted to double check before ordering it.

I actually shoot a variety of formats, from sub 35 to a little large format with a borrowed camera, but the forums made me choose just one. I've been reading through a lot of resources, including, lately and have been wanting a 4x5 for a while now. Finally came to the conclusion that I wanted a Tachihara after a lot of research, but wasn't quite ready to buy one until I saw KEH dropped their price, so I went for it.
