MaŽl, I see that you preference is a rangefinder vs a reflex camera. I have the Fuji 6x9 "Texas" Leica and it is a beast but virtually indestructible. The downsisde is film cost: 8 shots per roll. I also have one of the smaller Fuji's--the GS645 folder. It's not to everyone's liking (bellows prone to pinholes and a somewhat delicate film transport mechanism) but if you find one in good shape it's a winner. Excellent optics, small & compact while giving an outstanding image. It's priced a bit less than the later Fuji GA series. Another consideration would be a Mamiya 645 Super or Pro model with eye level prism. Although not a rfdr, it has the advantage of low cost and interchangealbe lenses & backs (if you need). Set up with a prism it's heavier than the Fuji series but if you've been looking at the Mamiya Press series it's far more manageable. Just some suggestions...
