I sometimes think about the Mamiyas and Bronica but at the time of writing this, I was leaning towards something more compact (collapsible/folder). I'm very uncertain when it comes to 120 RF's. I feel that there are too many pros and cons and that there are two essential types of 120 RF's:
1. Those that are more compact but less ergonomic: Classic folders, Fuji 645, Makina, Bessa III (same as GF670)
2. Those that are not compact but more ergonomic: Bronica RF, Mamiya 6/7, Fuji 6x7/6x9
I don't really need multiple focal lengths for what I intend on using this camera for. Just casual slow weekend shooting. I'd rather have an SLR for multiple focal lengths and if I were to get other lenses in medium format then it would probably be on the longer end, for portraits, and that screams SLR.
I may consider a Bronica RF or a Mamiya 6 because I really want something compact. From what I've seen online the Mamiya 7 looked kind of big, I would probably look for comparison photos with the Bronica RF and/or Mamiya 6. My thinking is that the advantages of these two cameras over the Makina and Fuji 645 is ergonomics and robustness, I may get one of those since it is more practical.
