    Looks pretty annoying if it's true. I ordered my camera in February and have been told it should ship this month. I've bought the needed center filter and lensboard to utilize the Schneider 80mm lens so I really hope it works.
    The bed doesn't show at all with a 90mm (using my black MkIV and a Nikkor 90/8 on a flat board) in either landscape or portrait orientation. My Linhof's bed does show with a 90mm in portrait orientation but it's a simple matter of adding some slight front rise to clear the bed. You should be good with your 80mm, on my 90mm @ infinity I still have a fair amount of thread left on the focusing screw. A recessed board will probably help you get some more flexibility out of the bellows though.

    I did this little extension.
    I've even succeeded to get the Super Angulon 47mm XL to work with a 15mm recessed board. Not recommended though. Very finicky to work with and to adjust the shutter and aperture.
    But for my Super Angulon 75mm it works like a charm.
    That's ingenious sir. Btw I love your 6x12 color work.
