Format plays no major roll.

I shoot Rolleiflex and Leica mostly and my subject is oftentimes my family and friends. I enjoy the image quality from Rolleiflex but the handling and focusing from Leica. I'd love to have a medium format rangefinder that operates as smooth as my Leica. In someways it seems like the Mamiya is the best fit but sometimes I feel that the Makina is.
