I bought an HXZ45A-II a few years ago from Badger Graphic Sales in Wisconsin. While I have owned and used many cameras, this was the first one I had purchased brand new. There are many used camera choices on the market, and some great deals, but for me it felt like a better decision to be the original owner. I did start off with a used lens, and most of my other 4x5 gear is used, though I felt that was more careful shopping. Honestly, if that Shen-Hao is the camera that catches your eye, then I suggest you start saving up to get one.

Ciao!
