Maybe this should be another thread, but........... Does anyone have direct experience with a Bender? I found one thread with one guy who had a Bender, and actually liked it fairly well.

I'm looking to make the jump from medium format to large format. As I understand it, monorail cameras do have advantages over field cameras, and the Bender looks as though it would be any easy monorail to carry around. OTOH, the Shen is a fine lookin' piece of gear.
