    Where noise is an issue, the TLR is silent.

    For portraiture, there is no lag for a mirror to get out of the way and you can see the subject's expression at the instant the shutter fires, and know whether you got the shot.

    The smaller size and waist level finder is often less intimidating and more discreet.

    It can be hand held, or braced against a table or other object, to allow slower shutter speed than an SLR.

    It's lighter and easier to carry all day.

    I choose a twin lens because I don't have a MF slr or rf! I'd love to have the Mamiya 7ii, but I'd choose the C330 for portraits and close-ups (the parallax issue isn't that much of a detriment for me).

    The C330 is a brick, no denying it. However, I've seen a web-page somewhere or other claiming that a three-lens outfit weighs-in lighter than a comparable three-lens 6x6 SLR outfit.

    My own reason for going for it was financial - I couldn't find a cheaper way to get a good quality 6x6 with decent interchangeable glass.
    The destination is important, but so is the journey

    There is no cheaper way to interchangeable lens MF than the Mamiya C220, and it has quite good lenses - stepped down 2-3 steps they are very good, but not quite up to Zeiss lenses' resolution or contrast. But that is a rather marginal issue IMHO.
