    I own the Makina 67, 670 and W67. I am totally impressed by the lens signature of the Makina 67 and 670 for portraiture. They are somehow sharper than my Hasselblad 503CW with the CFE 80mm lens. I bought a Mamiya 6 but returned it because I found the build not as solid as the Makina. I hear the Mamiya 7 is sharper than the Makina but sometimes sharpness isn't everything...check out this shot on my flickr account:http://www.flickr.com/photos/the_clo...57628680978073

    The M7 150mm lens is superb. As for shallow DOF - you'll only get 4 inches at 6 feet and f/5.6. The real issue is focusing accurately with the fairly short rangefinder baseline. That's why I shoot environmental portraits with mine. There are better choices if you want tight head shots (SLR comes to mind).

    I have thought long and hard about what you articulate. That being said. I have arrived at this- I can put a Hasselblad into a rolled up rain-coat or whatever, and have no qualm with it getting knocked about or leaned on during a rest. I hiked Colorado this way a couple years back. If a Makina 67 were in my pack, I would would be afraid of rough treatment. Also a Hasslebald with WLF closed hangs real nice on your side, and with prices what they are, parts and repairs seemingly to be had anywhere, who cares if it gets knocked around or wet (and aside from grit and a absolute soaking a Hasselblad doesn't mind either, I think you could stand on one too.) I couldn't feel that way about any other camera I currently own... (except my economically worthless Nikonos system).

    +1 I covet the look/rendering of the Makina 67's Nikkor.

    BUT if I didn't own the 500cm system, I'd covet it too... :-)
