Sorry, I didn't get any email alerts, so thought there were no replies. I'll start here. Re the Hasselblad, I've two concerns. First, I find it quite awkward to hold; second, all in it cost me more than I'm prepared to admit, and I'm a bit paranoid about either dropping it or having it stolen. Re TLRs. I've got a Mamiya C220F, which I bought for this very purpose about a year ago. I'm really impressed with the images it produces and I love the fact that I can get really close up with it. As with the Hasselblad, I find it not the easiest thing to hand-hold and I've got major issues with the focusing. I'm using a 105mm lens, so the plane of sharp focus is pretty slim. I find focusing a pain. Thus, to get the results I want, I'm thinking about a camera that handles more like a classic SLR, so has some sort of grip I can grab on to.
