5X7 is such a nice format. A little more than a year ago I ordered a 5X7 from Wisner and paid him half. After months of not shipping the camera when he said he would and multiple phone calls about unkept promises I finally canceled the order. There was a little problem getting my money back but I did get it back finally and I got the Ebony instead. I have to thank Wisner for that because I love the Ebony. It's as good as people say - if you can, buy one. Note also it has assymetrical swings and tilts on the rear standard which is the only field camera that has them...you can live without them, but they are useful...
