Linhof - Linhof MT Classic v MT 2000 Help

Cameras & Camera Accessories - www.largeformatphotography.info
I'm looking to acquire a Linhof 4x5 and have zeroed in on either the MT Classic or MT 2000. I downloaded and have been reviewing the Linhof Master Technika System Manual. As I read the technical data on page 35 (see attachment below), these two cameras are nearly identical - except in the "Lenses" category. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar enough with these points of data to interpret what it means to me as a potential owner/operator of a MT Classic or MT 2000. My two questions are as follows:

1. Since I anticipate that all my focusing will be done on the ground glass and I will not be using the rangefinder-coupled focusing offered with the MT Classic, is there any differences between the two in this area that I should be aware of?

2. Am I missing something if I conclude that the MT Classic and MT 2000 offer the same front/back movements with the same bellows dimensions - am I missing some obvious difference?

Thanks all;

Jeff
