If you can find film for 250 , continue to use it. They have excellent Cooke Triplet clone and you can never find its qualities at a japanese lens. Its soft at the color and wildly sharp at bw and soft at the portraits. Think , you are using a camera made by the people WHO invented the film.
These old cameras are priceless and triplet lens is a big chance to own.

If you want to change your camera and move to film World , use a 250 dollars old Rollei with ZEISS TRIOTAR lens. Its a triplet and may be the best lens in the World. Invest time at flickr and try to see the qualities of that lens.

Other suggestion is more expensive zeiss ikon camera with ZEISS TESSAR lens , its four element.
