The Hasselblad is no easier, but I have the option of my 45-degree finder. Wish I had a split-image thing on the focusing screen of the Rollei.
    You can get custom screens for Rolleis if you want - even in the older cameras, but you'll need professional installation in the pre-F models. I'm planning on having bright screens put in both of my E's soon.

    Don't use a 'blad anywhere near a faultline...

    I have two 500-series Hassy's and at least 7-8 Rolleiflexes including the -wide, the Tele-, and the SL66. They are all the best.

    I put a Chinese made replacement Rolleiflex screen in my Microcord (essentially a UK made Rolleicord III) with no issues it's a simple swap no focus shift, just 4 screws. I'd bought it hoping it might be possible to fit in my Yashicamat 124.

    The screen in my Rolleiflec 3.5E is excellent but I think they used improved screens in the later versions.

    The mirror on a 'blad would score pretty highly on the Richter scale...

    Try a Bronica S2A or a Pentax 67 sometime. I don't think the scale would go high enough for the S2A.

    I think the title of this thread should be changed as it does not appear that there is a "last word." I think perhaps "Ongoing Words: Rolleiflex vs Hassey" would be a bit more accurate.
