Has anyone heard of the brand "Zone", who makes large format cameras? I've been looking into buying a 4x5 large-format camera, and have been digging through eBay items. I came across this one:
It looks nice...however I am curious about the "Gold Plated Hardware" comment. Seems a little sketchy for a $1200 camera...a Linhof costs some five times as much, and it looks a lot less pretty. Is this thing legit? Is "Zone" a viable brand, or should I stick with the well-known brands like Linhof, Wista, Tachihara, etc.?
