If you have some really large coverage 4x5 lenses (XL's etc.) the Shen Hao wouldn't have adequate movements, especially in the shorter lenses. That being said, I've owned mine for upwards of 2 years now and am pleased with it. It is not an Ebony by any stretch of the imagination, but it is a well made camera with more features than a Wista or Tachihara entry level model. If you use long lenses, you'll need an extension or a tele lens. I would think you will be pleased with the purchase as it goes for about $600 (US).
