I bought a Busch 4x5 30 years ago and still use it. The two drawbacks in my opinion are the small sized lensboard that prevents the use of many modern lenses and the lack of the wonderful graflok back.

I've used the BP for about 3 years, and I have used and restored crown graphics for about the same time. The BP is a wonderful camera to use. It is very precise and has a wonderful build quality. The graflexes are made with alot of stamped sheet metal and have a clunky feel to them.

There are 2 serious problems with the BP. The throat of the front standard is small. Lenses with large rear elements wont fit. I had a 90mm Super angulon that barely fit, but I had to modify one part to get the 210mm summar-s to fit. Dont even thing about anything XL. The 2nd problem is that the BP is not designed for wide-angle lenses. There is a drop-bed, but the inner rail does not move, so it is near impossible to focus with anything wider than 90mm.
