I'd probably go with Shen-Hao or Chamonix. Great price (within your range - second-hand) and great cameras, from what I hear. Both should handle 90mm - 250mm lens without any problems...
For myself, I started with a Speed Graphic, moved to a wooden old B&J 5x7 beater, and ended up with Horseman Woodman 4x5 It's like Tachihara, only better (Graflok back, a bit sturdier perhaps). Light as a feather, compared to a Speed Graphic (or an MPP). Don't regret the choice, but would have also jumped on a Shen-Hao at a comparable price (300-400).
