I am contemplating my first 4x5 field camera. After reviewing the field of wood en field cameras, I have narrowed down my choices to a Wista DX (with shift) and a Wisner Expedition. Ignoring the significant cost difference between the two models, what are people's general opinions regarding what would be a better mode l that one could "grow into"? My general application is landscape photography a nd a little portrait work. I'd like to be able to mount a lens as wide as 75mm on the 4x5. When I pose this question to a dealer in my area, I can never get t he same answer twice (i.e. one pushes Toyo; another Wista; and a third Wisner).
Thanks in advance for your time. Robert
