... then seriously consider the reccomendations for Rollei Va or Vb. That was my "starter MF camera" in 1982 and I used it until a couple of years ago when I got the uncontrollable urge for a Hasselblad. I tried a Yashica along the way and didn't like it as much as the Rolleicord. Plus, Rollei accessories are easily available so i fyou want to expand your capabilities you can do that... except you'll be restricted to a single lens, which did not turn out to be too much of a limitation for me.
