The Horseman SW was much more popular out here in the west Coast than 
the Alpa.
It was made by the company which once made another professional camera, 
the Topcon D.
Somewhere along the way Calumet Photographic got in the game with it's 
own wide.
Since then, the Horseman SW disappeared off the store shelf, with only 
Calumets junker versions available.
