Uncoated Xenar? How old would that be? [You can check the scheinder website under vintage lens info] My understanding is that the older lenses from this company had less then ideal QC. So IMHO you're paying almost $300 for just the camera and holders. I don't know just seems high for any B&J-) Didn't Calumet make a woodfield to? Could it be the same camera?

I'm assuming the problem with the CC400 is the shape more then the weight?

$300 isn't much less then one of those new Chinese cameras.
