    So let me get this right, you're used to 30X40 prints from 4X5 and want a
    digital to replace that for under $2000? Sounds more like you need a fuji
    6X9 rangefinder to me..

    Remember, in your post you said "best you can buy digital print." $2000
    doesn't get you the best you can buy, more on the order of $10,000 and up
    will. The Canon 1Ds mkII mentioned in the article is about $8000, the
    Mamiya ZD I mentioned runs about $10,000, body only, and the 32mp Hassy back
    even more than that. $2000 will get you a 20D with a 28-135 IS or 17-85 IS
    lens, which will get you very nice 16x20s, but if you push it to 30x40, you
    may be disappointed. You may be able to find a used Canon 1Ds (11mp, not
    mkII) for that price, but it's unlikely, I'm looking at one for $5000, and
    used digital backs for MF are still up in that range and more.

    Or something like a 1D/10D/20D, stitching software, a fast PC and a lot
    of organisation and patience.

    Well, it should have nice glass and a nice body and case, anyway... ;-)
