Anyone use the Koren fonts?

Does anyone have experience typesetting the Koren Tanakh typeface? (I mean the digital one distributed by MasterFont.) None of the vendors I see online show a full glyph set, and I have a few questions that would influence my decision to use it.

  1. Weight

Does the regular font have a weight similar to what is printed in most Koren books? It looks light to me, but I’d be surprised if they expect people to set everything in boldface. (For that matter, does the bold font have either nikkud or cantillation marks?)

  1. Final caf

Does the final caf have the option for an attractive inline kamatz and shva (the most common presentation), or can you only place those below the baseline?

Thanks in advance for any replies.
