    If you can find film for 250 , continue to use it. They have excellent Cooke Triplet clone and you can never find its qualities at a japanese lens. Its soft at the color and wildly sharp at bw and soft at the portraits. Think , you are using a camera made by the people WHO invented the film.
    These old cameras are priceless and triplet lens is a big chance to own.

    If you want to change your camera and move to film World , use a 250 dollars old Rollei with ZEISS TRIOTAR lens. Its a triplet and may be the best lens in the World. Invest time at flickr and try to see the qualities of that lens.

    Other suggestion is more expensive zeiss ikon camera with ZEISS TESSAR lens , its four element.

    now that's some serious insight. Truth is, I know nothing about lens design, and while I can look at pictures, I'm not sure what to be looking for when comparing to other designs, would you recommend a reading on lens design?

    Honestly, it's cheap as hell, so I'm going for a Polaroid Big Shot whenever I can find one I can afford. I know I can use Fuji FP-3000b in shade and Fuji FP-100b or FP-100c in daylight. I'd hate to have to buy flash cubes, effectively doubling the price to shoot. That's why I'm concerned with the film types.

    Nathan, do you know how to compensate exposure when using the spacers on the Universal/600 for macro work?

    No, I've never done any sort of medium format macro photography. I'm just a fashion/portrait/event photographer.
