I like the 45 degree finder on the Hassy. I prefer it over the waist level finder for everything except weight and bulk. It's nice to be able to shoot without the camera held so it covers your face. That's one feature of the Hassy that I like over the 35mm and Pentax SLRs. Seems that shooting this way keeps you less isolated from your subject (not an issue for landscape, but nice for people shots). Also by looking down people on the street don't seem to think your taking their picture as much, even when the lens is pointed right at them.
