Traded off, large aperture lenses that are not light weight, camera with limited movements with limited camera/bellows extension and camera/bellows compression to allow using wide angle lenses with significant camera movement.

    ~Monorail camera such as the Sinar F2 has FAR more camera/bellows extension and camera compression, camera movements than ANY field folder. This allows using nearly ANY optic in the Sinar system. Couple this with the Sinar shutter allows using barrel lenses. Modularity allows configuring the camera as needed to meet most any view camera image making need. Sinar monorail system is no where near as compact/foldable as a lightweight field foldable and can never be folded up into essentially a box for compact and ease of transport.

    Take the time to read this before deciding.

    Again, primary or top priority is deciding the kind of images you're interested in making, the lenses-optics needed to achieve this, then consider which style of view camera meets the majority of these needs and demands most.

    It does not have “far more movement” then say a LInhof TK 45 or the TK 45S. And the TK has separate locks for all movements front and back.
