I moved from a Yashica TLR to Mamiya TLR about 40 years ago, and from Mamiya to a Hasselblad 501C last year. I have to ask myself why it took so long every time I use it. I love the 501, the way it feels, the quality of the camera and lens, and the photos seem special. I think you will be very happy. My suggestion is to find the best one you can afford and test it like others have said. Mine had seen little use, probably as a back-up camera for someone, but it still needed a few adjustments. Wayne
