A waist level finder is a pain in the rear on a rectangular format camera. The speed grip does speed things up.

If you get your ETRSI for a good price it will be relatively easy to sell it if you decide to upgrade to some Zeiss glass. I own one but mostly use a far more expensive Rollei 6008i for the square format, superior lenses, and electronic cable release (zero vibration). I have to say though the images from my ETRS kit are nice. Rollei TLRs can be very sharp but they are very different when compared to 35mm SLRs. They are not everyone's cup of tea.
The camera comes with the speed grip and has started at 0.99 without a reserve but all the others on eBay are around the 200-300 price, but there are a couple around 100 without the speed grip too. From everyone else's replies, would the 6x4.5 format be good for me to start with?
