The two approaches are very different.
I think that all of the panoramic cameras, including swing lens and fixed lens, are specialty equipment, and could easily be encompased in one forum.

Standard cameras with cropped negs should be discussed in their respective forums.

View cameras with panoramic backs are kinda on the line. But I'm sure most users will post questions about the backs here and about the cameras in other forums.
