If you're interested in all of this, PM me, we can discuss a deal.

I love my 105/2.4 on my Pentax 67II, so 135mm on 6x9 isn't too long.

In terms of size, you will definitely save by going 2x3, it's like half-size.

Another thing you should remember about the 2x3, though, is that there is no simple way to shoot instant film, as there never was a Polaroid back for the 2x3. For 4x5, there's both 3x4 pack film adapter (with current film being made by Fuji), 4x5 pack film adapter (unfortunately all discontinued but still available), and the old peel apart 4x5 instand film from Polaroid (expired film available on Ebay).
On shooting Polaroid/Fuji Instant Film on 2x3 (6x9cm) cameras your statement is incorrect.

There was a Polaroid back made for the Horseman VH/VHR that can be used on other 6x9 cameras if they have a Graflok back. I used one on a Horseman VHR and later used the same back on a Gowland 6x9 view camera. I'm sure that it won't fit all 6x9 cameras, but will fit a lot of them.

If you buy one it's important to get the ground glass spacer with it. There was also a rangefinder spacer included with it so you could use the VHR hand-held but this would probably be a moot point on anything else.
