Wow, the money they have raised is amazing. And the interest in 4x5 photography has really increased.

I'm interested in one even just for the pin hole at half the price of the Ilford camera, which itself is not a bad deal.

Anyone know why the f4.5 90mm lenses are not compatible? The size of them partially defeats the purpose of this camera, but as I already own one I would probably use it before buying a second lens.

Geoff, I think it has to do with either the film to flange distance or the size of the rear element. If you read the long but comprehensive thread on the Large Format Photography Forum you may well find a better and more specific answer.
