Nice camera - and the lens you just bought - holy sh*te! That is so sweet!! You are ready to rock-n-roll! I hope you show us some portraits made with that lens - sweet spot! Thanks for sharing!
If you need modifications, you have another option (other than Ray at Star) - I can hook you up, let me know when you want your back tweaked.
You will be elated with your results (if you learn how to make plates the right way), I'll guarantee it
