    agree, if you follow this instructions my suggestion is a Hassel, if not, a Mamiya 7.

    Since the OP mentioned final print size as a criteria I believe that Mamiya 7 6X7 format or Fuji 6X9 format will easily beat any other system for hand held exposures.

    Upfront my bias: I use three Rollei TLRs. Many times I've been amazed at the detail in my negatives. Recently, I photographed, handheld, a guy at rest with his bike. From 10 - 12 feet away, I was using ACROS film, EI 200, developed in DD-X. On the negative I could easily see thousands of his leg hairs. Those didn't make it through the printing process at my local shop. The scan [300 dpi, supposedly] is too low resolution. I don't complain; prints [proofs for me] are 60 cents each [6"x6"]. I'll see those details when printed with enlarger.

    My Rolleis are all 3.5 lenses; Tessar and two Xenars.

    I recently purchased a plaubel 67. Didn't get a chance to test it yet. As far as sharpness goes has anyone got to compare one of these?

    For hand held I really like my Mamyia 6, the 50s version, fixed lens, leaf shutter, very light weight. I can also hand hold by Mamyia Univerasal, but the sharpest negatives I gotten is from the 6.

    I would love to say Rolleiflex (which I own, shoot and love), but I would have to second all the Mamiya 6/7 votes. I love the look of Plaubel shots (I saw a Wim Wenders exhibit last year that was shot almost exclusively on the Makina 670 and it was awesome), but I still think the Mamiya 6 is sharper.

    The sharpest MF camera i've ever used hand held was the Mamiya 7. That was with the 'normal' lens. Very, very sharp. Visibly sharper than my Pentax 645 negatives (and I think that's pretty sharp)

    It's a great camera, if I had money to spend i'd probably buy one.
