The Fuji GSW690 II/III is a wonderful camera if you like the 6x9 format and can live with a fixed 65mm lens. I love the camera and appreciate the simplicity. The Mamiya Press cameras are part of a system with lots of lenses, backs, and accessories. If you're planning on building a system the Mamiya would be great, but if you just want 6x9 with a wide angle, the Fuji makes way more sense--being a lot more compact and lighter.
