Even the zone system is easily accommodated. One back for N, one for N-1.5 or so and one for N+1.5. Combined with modern VC paper that's all I'm likely to ever need.

Tempting, but I do love using the view camera.
That's exactly right, Roger. =) I'm probably at about 50%/50% usage percentage between my 4x5 and RB67. 3 lenses, 3 backs for different development and you're golden. It isn't any lighter than my 4x5 kit but it's much faster and you can load film anywhere.
