I didn't mind the lighting setup at all - thought it was nice and anyway, rules are meant to be broken!
I recently did a week-long portrait workshop with a well-known pro in Sydney. He was using his Hasselblad with a 150mm lens, a good lens hood and a waist level finder - on a tripod, and it was superb.
I was using my Rolleiflex which was once the camera of choice for studio work but the longer lens on the Hassy was brilliant. I agree - 90mm on a 6x7 is borderline. I don't have a Tele Rolleiflex (135mm) - only the standard 2.8/80mm and a 4.0/55mm WA, but I think a normal tele 150mm on a Hasselblad or Bronica 6x6 would require less backing up than a 180mm on the KO? If there was a 135 for the KO it might suit better.
Since you're leaning towards the Bronica you might find this review interesting <http://photo.net/equipment/bronica/sq-ai>
