One of my photo buddies uses an Ebony and it sure is a nice machine. Very well made and the craftsmanship is obvious.

However I would not spend the kind of money they want for one new. If you can get a good price on a used one go for it.

My Wista knock-off by Toko servers me fine and cost me a fraction of the Ebony.

Here is a link to the Wista camera that looks just like mine.
