    If I was in your situation, and wanted to keep the cost within reason and your budget, bearing in mind your requirements of a between the lens shutter lenses and 6x6 format, I would go for a Bronica SQA. I don't have any axe to grind, my own M/F gear is Mamiya C330, but if I was buying at present it would be the SQA.

    I'd say Bronica is best bang for buck. Nice tack sharp glass and entire outfit can be had from KEH for under $400. Mamiya is also a good choice for the money, new lens selection and good film backs too.
    NOTE: "IF" you do select a "Hassy" give it a serious once over because many have more miles on them than a '72 Pinto.

    If you want to find a used Hassy outfit in your price range, go to KEH. At least you'll have some degree of warranty/protection if the stuff goes bad on you. If you aren't totally opposed to the idea, a Rollei TLR will easily fall within your budget. No MLU to worry about- no mirror to get in the way of the taking lens. I got my 2.8 C on Ebay for about $500. The shutter needs a CLA, but other than that, it's terrific.
