    Yep, that's one reason why I started to think about 6x7. They are practically giving away something like an RB67 these days... You can get the body, with a 180 and mag for what I paid for my used 4/150 for the Blad...

    I doubt you would see any noticeable difference in going to 67 from what you already are shooting.
    The other film advice already given is worth exploring.

    I'm considering ADOX CHS 100 ART, because of it's old fashioned spectral sensitivity (less red sensitive).

    ADOX 100 is a normal panchromatic film; you want ADOX 25 or 50 for the reduced red sensitivity.

    But if you have a film with less red sensitivity, you will have greater subject contrast, because anything that is remotely pink on their skin will look dark.

    That said, ADOX 100 could be interesting, but it's a bit coarse-grained for a 100 film. If you're willing to go C41, XP2 Super would be your absolute best bet for midtones. In silver gelatin, I would go with Tri-X 400, Neopan 400, FP4+, Delta 400, or even TMAX/Delta 3200.
