So, my I am looking to buy a 4x5 field camera + lens for ~$1000. For this price, I am expecting to buy used, so are there some things I should look for/inquire about when buying a used 4x5 camera? I have read about the front and rear standard rigidity being an important part of buying a 4x5, but by searching this forum, I could not come up with anything else. Also, Nikkor lenses seem to be affordable (I don't need/can't afford anything German quite yet (i.e. Rodenstock, Schneider). Can anyone recommend a lens and focal length (this will be landscape+portrait: 150mm ?) I have read good things about the Tachihara, and at ~$850 new, a used price for this camera seems realistic seeing as I still need to buy a lens, focusing cloth, lensboard, film carriers, filters, etc. Has anyone used this camera? Thanks. edit: any other reliable resources/classifieds on 4x5 cameras that I should look into?
