And then it can take just about any realistic focal length from 38mm to 600mm with the normal bellows. I have bag bellows for mine which makes it easier to use very short lenses, though.

The self-casing is very useful to me, since I live in a mountainous area: I trust the CI to survive anything I can survive. Landscape photography around here can be tricky...

For those of us who "need" the combination of portability and movements there is simply nothing else which comes close. For photographers in flatter pars of the world it might well be overkill.
Ole has pretty much covered why I got it. While it is pretty, and it is rare, that was not the basis for the purchasing decision--I'm going to use it, not drool on it.

Any thoughts, Ole, on my comments about how it holds up to wind in the field? My Horseman LE requires just about a vacuum of air to keep the image projection stable.
