From personal experience with both, plus the Kiev 60, I'll have to say that I'm not very fond of any of them. They all seem to have mechanical weaknesses and flaws, especially when it comes to film loading and frame spacing with the Pentacon Six and the similar Kiev 60, and the Kiev 88CM is notoriously variable in quality of construction. In my first month of use the plastic tab that unlocks the film back broke off, followed shortly by the light trap for the darkslide tearing away from it's mount. I'd probably choose the Kiev 60TTL as a user, as I can handle it like an overblown 35mm SLR.
