I have thought long and hard about what you articulate. That being said. I have arrived at this- I can put a Hasselblad into a rolled up rain-coat or whatever, and have no qualm with it getting knocked about or leaned on during a rest. I hiked Colorado this way a couple years back. If a Makina 67 were in my pack, I would would be afraid of rough treatment. Also a Hasslebald with WLF closed hangs real nice on your side, and with prices what they are, parts and repairs seemingly to be had anywhere, who cares if it gets knocked around or wet (and aside from grit and a absolute soaking a Hasselblad doesn't mind either, I think you could stand on one too.) I couldn't feel that way about any other camera I currently own... (except my economically worthless Nikonos system).
