Excellent recommendations, all. I think I will stick with the 124G and continue thinking about the m645.
Regarding the "toy" comment about the 124G, it's an opinion I've read on a number of boards. Many posters say that once you've handled a Rolleiflex, anything else (they've mentioned the 124G specifically) feels like a toy. I suppose there exists Rolleiflex "supremacists" and that is where the "toy" reference comes from. Perhaps the word "toy" is a bit harsh. Thought I don't see anyone raving about the build quality of the 124G, whereas Mamiyas (e.g. the C-series) are often described as being built like tanks.
Personally, I can't say that the 124G feels cheap by any means (then again, I haven't handled a Rolleiflex...heh).
