One significant difference (applies to any TLR vs any SLR) is that you see the subject at the moment of exposure.
As to "a C330 with a 135 or 180 for similar money" (in this case $500), I think you can do a lot better than that if buying from a private party and minimally patient. I'd stay away from the older chrome (Seikosha shutter) lenses.
I got rid of my C330 because of the fiddle factor - there was no "ease of use" with a C330. However there is ease of use with a Hassey.

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
For my (future) C330, I wonder if I should buy a 135 or a 180. Is there a quality difference?

I have both the 135 and 180 super, I have used them for twenty three years, they are both very good, I prefer the135 especially if I'm working in my small studio, or in peoples houses, the 180 is good for tight head shots, and outdoors.
